THURSDAY HUGE FINANCE Update: 

Dennis’ team just let us know that HRC now has to attend a funeral on Thursday afternoon and has to leave the event at 5:30 pm. They have to 
move up the entire program so she can speak at 3:30 pm and they can begin the reception at 4:00 pm. 

Dennis said that given the change in circumstances you don’t need to come up just for the reception from 4:00-5:30 pm. However, since you 
already have a mostly non-refundable 2:00 pm flight (we can recoup $200 in credit) you still have the option of coming up for the evening if you 
think it's worthwhile. 

Please let us know your preference here. We can ’t cancel the flight but can cancel the 9:05 pm Acela back to DC.

For my conversation with JDP on Monday 

Draft Deal Summary Memo[1].docx 

Landlord Second Round[1].xlsx 

CashFlowEquitableGrowth201 5-201 7-HB.xlsx 

org-chart-floorplan.pdf 


Hello Milia, 

On the agenda for our meeting Monday (9:45 am) is an update on the transitions and potential office space; the 
latest updates on revenue and prospects; and a request to post for two positions that were in our 2015 budget 
— a special assistant and a policy analyst. Plus, anything else John wants to discuss. 

A few details: 

1. Below are Ed’s notes from his call today with Steve. We understand Steve and John are talking 
today at 3:15 so I’m including this in case it’s helpful for that conversation. 

2. For the attachments, the cash flow budget needs on the first tab, “Cash Flow 2015-17” printed. It is laid out 
to print IN COLOR on LEGAL paper. 

3. The floorplan is a first cut — we put people into offices to get a sense of space (it will fit us bursting at 
seams if we fill in our full staffing plan), but we did not focus on the actual best seating. 

Thanks, 

Heather

Subject: Details for today's noon conversation 

Hi Steve, 

Here's an email to tee up our conversation today. On my list are these things: 

1) . Update you on the office search — the three attached docs explain what we've done to date, where we stand with a final 
suggested location, and how this fits in with our five-year staffing plan. 

(Steve will review the docs —I sent them to him right before our call, which he didn 't appreciate, but I explained in our conversation that I just 
wanted him to review the approach of the memo and the pricing outcomes. He thinks this is a good approach for the board but will get back 
with any specifics. The main thing we discussed is timing for board approval of a lease if things move more quickly with the sublandlord of the 
office space. We discussed either a series of quick phone-only board meetings our perhaps a Unanimous Consent doc with the details of the 
lease to happen first by email, then a second meeting with all the other stuff the board needs to approve below.) 

2) . Update you on the separation agreement that Alex is working up— basically a doc that allows Equitable Growth and CAP to 
identify everything we need to deal with and sort it out methodically. 

(Steve really likes this idea but wants to ensure flexibility right up to the end, which is something Alex and Torey and I also agreed upon, so good 
to go here. I should have the initial draft of this doc in hand by the end of the month.) 

3) . Update you on Debbie's progress on several fronts— two questions for you about the financing of health care and retirement 
savings that she'd like to make sure are possible or practical. 

(Steve said we should benchmark to CAP on both bennies and one other organization to give the board a one-page feel for what's being decided. 
He thought the CAP bennies on retirement savings were appropriate but suggested that the different in health care costs given our shift to a 
smaller organization means we can 't expect to match apples to apples with CAP) 

4) . Discuss what else besides the preliminary 2016 budget and the office lease to discuss at the first board meeting— mainly 
whether the board wants to weigh in on the health care and retirement savings decisions 

(Steve said the main thing is to provide the board with comfort on the revenue side of the ledger as we can adjust our spending to meet

contingencies, and the Sandlers can backstop if absolutely essential. He said a preliminary 2016 budget is okay, but would like it to be as non- 
preliminary as possible.) 

5) . Update on Finance and Admin Manager search— a few worthy bites from our posting and one good candidate Debbie sent our 
way who I'm going to have a preliminary chat with later today. 

(Steve is very happy we may not have to pay a headhunter. I told him I'm talking to one promising candidate today, but added that out of about 
50 resumes received since we posted the job on our site and around the web there were only a handful of plausible candiates. He added to 
make sure the hire is a good culture fit given the importance of the position.) 

6) . 1023 update— I read thru it all one last time this morning and will send it back for filing by our lawyers with Fleather's sig this 
afternoon. 

(It is being filed today! He's happy, thought I think slightly annoyed at the time spent angling for an accelerated ruling request from the IRS.) 
And obviously anything else you'd like to discuss. 

(He suggested I keep him updated next week on the office lease situation as that might involve some further steps by the Sandlers to nail down 
the signing and deposit.) 

Thanks, 

Ed

Subject: Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign Jobs 


Hi Mr.Podesta, 

I graduated from the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology in July 2013. I have 
been searching for a job in politics since graduating. I did a Fellowship Internship for the Michelle Nunn for US 
Senate & Jason Carter for Governor Campaign through GA Victory 2014 this past fall. Anyway, do you have any 
information on paid full time jobs with Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign once she announces in April? I can 
send you my resume if you would like? I look forward to hearing back from you soon! 

Thank You, 

Ryan Decos

The Hill: Supreme Court to rule on 
Obamacare contraception mandate. Click 
here to help Democrats protect Obamacare 

John, we HAVE to stand up for the millions of American women who rely on their healthcare for 
affordable quality contraception and for President Obama’s legacy by protecting Obamacare. 

BUT, we can’t do that alone. Tuesday is just one year from Election Day. Between Tuesday and the 
election the GOP is going to do everything they can to make it harder for a woman to make her own 
healthcare choices. 

That is why we need your help.

WOW -- 1 literally cannot believe this: 

This morning, Nancy Pelosi asked you to step up for Brad. When I went to check the numbers, I 
saw something AMAZING: 

1. Your response was spectacular (ok, I expected that) 

2. But as of 3pm, we're within striking distance of $1 MILLION(!!!) raised online for 
Brad. SERIOUSLY.

$1,000,000.00 has A LOT of zeroes. And honestly, your support COULD NOT have come at 
better time. 

Why? This week alone, Boehner and billionaire Republicans are pounding the 
Chicago airwaves with over $2.5 million against Brad.

Dear Sir, 

Subject: Disentanglement from Afghanistan 

I have been conducting a pertinacious correspondence with your Committee in latest four years trying exerting pressure on 
US Establishment that might have eventually got NATO Troops been pulled out of Afghanistan. According to TV Program 
dedicated to US Arsenal as many as 7000 UAV are being stored unused in Magazines instead of attacking targets in 
Afghanistan with the following emerging advantages: 

1) Severing Terror Organizations' from their Financial Sources 

2) Salvation of millions of potential Drug Addicts from awful agony and death. 

3) Acceleration of Troops pulling out from Afghanistan due to Intensification of Aerial raids. 

4) Restoration of US Deterrence as a result of UAV strengthening. 

I believe in Terror Overwhelming defeat under those circumstances. 

5) I remember UN 1946 Chapter 5 1 (self defense right that every country deserves) but being surprised by US failing of its 
Exercise in spite of its Technical Preponderance 

6) Despite my Thorough UAV Special Version Design for Narcotic Vegetation Eradication even one word of 
Acknowledgement has not reached my mailbox hitherto. 

7) Ignominious for a Super Power isn't it? 

Sincerely, 

Gideon Rodeh

Thanks! 

I want to understand the degree to which taxing the middle class still resonates. I am sure there are a 
number of ways to frame this. Four years ago, invocation of the middle class (growing, expanding, 
strengthening) in all things was huge. Is this still the case? 

And of course now there is much you are probably already testing re: national security and guns. Would be 
interested to know how much "keeping our families safe" trumps other related valences since it would be a 
sweet spot for her as a female CiC.

Attached is a full mock script for Tuesday. Please review and comment. 


As for the session itself, we will do some Q-and-A drills before we start the mock. So we won’t get 
through this entire mock, but we will use pieces of it . I will send around a proposed agenda later 
today. 


And of course, Karen will be having a baby on Tuesday early morning, so, she’ll probably be an hour

How much pickup with anything this weekend get? 

If we think this is a dead weekend, my gut would be to get a week-long plan put together leading up to 
La Raza. Call to action to the groups, ask CHC members to write op eds, Univision interview, etc. then 
we need to make more news at La Raza. 

In any case, I'd rather focus on getting lots of pickup and organizing around some news at La Raza than 
getting some one offs that don't penetrate as much.

Alex, who works for Haim, called a few minutes ago. Same message- Haim thinks HRC needs to be 
on the forefront of this and show that she's an integral part of the community, lift up and be proud 
of the contributions Latinos make. I shared what she has said and reminded him that all of this 
happened in the wake of Charleston. He asked to call him and share our plan and get input from 
them, let me know how you feel about that. 

Agree with all that's been said. Would be good to have HRC do a Univision interview soon and say 
something to English media. 

Amanda, myself, and others can also be on SLM delivering the message. Other surrogates can 
really hammer the GOP and make this about the Party of Trump. It's about condemning Trump 
and the lack of R leadership. It's not just his comments, but the policy implications that all the Rs 
agree with. 

Espuelas is on Face the Nation (see below)- if we have a good relationship with him, can we make 
sure he's seen what HRC has said on this ? 

(Face the Nation": Sen. Bob Corker ... Sen. Amy Klobuchar ... Rick Santorum ... Panel: Mike Allen, Ruth "The Truth" Marcus, Peter Baker and 
talk-show host Fernando Espuelas) 


Other thoughts: 

-Do we have anyone going on TV this weekend? 

-Thinking about the early 4, there is the Trump International Hotel in Vegas. Maybe there is an 
organizing opportunity next week. Would be good to reach out to UNITE HERE. 

-Online: Engage Latinos and give them something to do so we can galvanize them against the GOP 
and affirm their values for the contributions they make. And let them know that we stand with them-- 
that the platform of HRC is the platform that stands with Latinos and lifts up their contributions.

Called me yesterday afternoon with same message. I told him she had said 
something but he says he's only heard her talk about immigration. And if Haim 
is raising it, it means he's hearing it from his Univision colleagues. I told him I'd 
send what we had said so Kristina if you have that, would be great. 

Also told him about la raza but he thought that was too late. Do you think we 
would get it as a question at the press avail tomorrow? Cause it would be

This reflects talking this through with Jen and then Karen, let's tweak but try to turn around quickly. Adding

Surrogates Q&A in Response Issa Letter/NYT Story 

- We've been over this, and over this, and over this again. She had an email account. She used that email 
account to correspond with over 100 people inside the State Department, outside the State Department, 
likely even some Republicans. 

- This was not a secret being kept, it was an email address. And she followed the letter and spirit of the 
law. 

- And let's remember something. This was a 2012 letter, isn't it interesting that it's coming out over 2 years 
later in 2015, the first day she begins campaigning in Iowa? What does that tell you about this? It tells you 
that this is more of the same partisan charade by the Republicans, the same Republicans who are turning 
to this because they didn't find any smoking gun on Benghazi. 

If asked about the mention in the story about violating the rules in the foreign affairs 
manual: 

- Let's remember something, 6 weeks ago the State Department email servers went down and they asked 
that people use their personal accounts. 

If pressed on whether Hillary Clinton gets to play by her own set of rules: 

- Well I'll tell you this, she has asked the State Department to turn over all 55,000 pages of her emails, and 
it's still not enough. So I'd say that the Republicans try and hold her to a different standard because they 
are afraid of what she has to offer as a candidate. 

- She's out there talking to voters, listening to their ideas and talking through some of hers. 

- It's important not to let these partisan attacks go unresponded to, but that's not what she's focused on.

Hillary Clinton Was Asked About 
Emair 2 Years Ago 

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional 
investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email 
account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The 
New York Times. 

But Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter. And when the State Department 
answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the 
question and provided no response for it. 

The query was posed to Mrs. Clinton in a Dec. 13, 2012, letter from Representative 
Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and 
Government Reform. Mr. Issa was leading an investigation into how the Obama 
administration handled its officials’ use of personal email. 

“Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to 
conduct official business?” Mr. Issa wrote to Mrs. Clinton. “If so, please identify the 
account used.”

Subject: Update on Ebola Outbreak: Georgetown’s Trav el Policies and Health Protocol 


Dear Members of the Georgetown University Community: 

We are writing today to ensure that all members of our community are aware of our policies and procedures related to the Ebola virus outbreak in 
West Africa. Georgetown University, along with MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, the DC Department of Health and the Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), continue to monitor the outbreak of the Ebola vims in West Africa and its global impact. 

While the risk of the Ebola vims affecting our campus community is low, the university has a policy in place to address travel to West Africa and 
has implemented a protocol to educate our community, identify individuals who may be at risk of exposure and monitor travelers returning from 
affected regions. 

Travel Policy 

As we wrote in August, Georgetown continues to prohibit university-sponsored travel for all of its students, faculty and staff to Liberia, Guinea 
and Sierra Leone. This guidance is consistent with CDC travel warnings to avoid non-essential travel to these areas. This means that university 
funds will not be used to support trips to these areas, nor will the university facilitate or otherwise endorse travel to these areas until further 
notice. 

This policy will remain in effect as long as the CDC maintains the current warnings. If travel warnings for new locations are issued by the CDC, the 
university’s travel policy will extend to those areas as well. 

Personal Travel 

Georgetown University strongly urges all members of the community to avoid personal travel to these areas. If there are compelling personal 
reasons for such travel, the University urges students, faculty and staff to contact Joseph Yohe, Associate Vice President for Risk Management 
at 202-687-6622 o ri oseph. vohe@georgetown. edu , prior to departure. Faculty should also review personal travel plans to these areas with 
their Campus Executive Vice President, and staff should review with the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, as appropriate, and 
comply with all relevant policies. 

Health Protocol 

Georgetown is following the CDC’s recently released guidance: Advice for Colleges. Universities and Students about Ebola in West Africa in 
our response-planning efforts. In order to protect our campus community from the Ebola vims, we ask that - before coming back onto campus - 
any faculty, staff or students who, in the last 21 days, have: 

traveled to a region with known outbreaks of Ebola; or 

had direct exposure to a person known to have an Ebola infection 

contact Joseph Yohe, Associate Vice President for Risk Management at 202-687-6622 or joseph.vohe@georgetown.edu . Members of 
our community are expected to follow our monitoring protocols, which will be based on an individualized risk assessment. 

It is important that all travelers adhere to these procedures in order to protect the health and safety of our campus community. Georgetown will 
continue to monitor updates from the CDC, the World Health Organization and the DC Department of Health in order to provide the most up-to- 
date and accurate information available. 

For additional information about Ebola, including signs and symptoms, transmission and risk of exposure, and what to do if you are exhibiting 
symptoms, please see FAQs excerpted from the CDC website here . 

Sincerely, 

Joseph Yohe 

Associate Vice President for Risk Management 
James C. Welsh 

Assistant Vice President for Student Health

WJC NBC interview 


MS et al - 

We got a readout of WJC's NBC interview from our friends in Africa. 

Going in, NBC agreed to do 70 percent of the piece on work of the 
Foundation and 30 percent about the book. Cynthia McFadden was the 
interviewer and didn't ask one question about work of the Foundation. 
Not one. 

Absurdly, NBC is still promising Craig that they will stick by 70-30 
agreement by using footage of the events and Cynthia describing the 
work of the Foundation. Not sure it will help, but I called Chuck 
Todd (as head of political unit) to let him know how outrageous and 
ludicrous this was and that our side of the house is watching to see 
how NBC handles this. The piece will air on Monday on the Today show. 

I think we have to make this public. We are being hit by the press 
for not getting more attention for the good work of the Foundation, 
take a network to Africa to see the work, give them an interview with 
the President, and they do not ask ONE question about the work of the 
Foundation. 

Craig has gotten in touch with NY mag this am to do a story about how 
grossly the media has handled the story on book/foundation and make 
this experience with NBC part of that story. 

I also think we need to make it appropriately known on our "briefing" 
page on the website where all of our response content will live (it 
will be hillaryclinton.com/briefing). Will figure out a way to do so 
in a rational, dispassionate way. But think we need to do. 

Below is a summary readout of the interview. We should have a 
transcript soon. Jen 

-Tone was calm and civil. 

-Says he has never knowingly accepted money from someone trying to 
influence government decisions, and if he knew that was any donor's 
goal, he wouldnt take their money 

-says there is not a "shred of evidence" they did anything wrong. 

-said the 990 forms were an innocent mistake 

-says he does not think foundation is hurting HRC campaign 

- Said it will be up to voters to decide if there is an appearance

problem, he is confident they will come to the right conclusion 

-said he might step down from Foundation if she wins - if he is asked 
to do something in government 

-Blamed media in having double standard with him compared to other 
presidents. His best lines were a riff saying the "theory of the case" 
behind the allegations was nuts in that you have government officials 
being influenced by philanthropic donations to poor people.

Dear Friends, 

Today is my last day at the White Ftouse. It has been a great privilege and a tremendous honor to work with you, to serve this 
President, and to deliver sound policy for the American people. Thank you for being hardworking, but light-hearted colleagues. I 
would say this is a once in a lifetime experience. But as I leave here I’m confident that the President and our senior leadership have 
inspired a generation of thoughtful leaders and policy makers who will continue to make a difference in the future. 

So, instead of goodbye, I look forward to meeting again.

Dear John, 


It was a pleasure to meet this past Th in NY. As discussed, I want to do whatever I can by way of 
sharing ideas, raising funds, recruiting campaign volunteers, and anything else that can help with 
your campaign. I hope my small efforts to introduce you to a growing group of professionals like 
myself will be able to boost your important work for Secretary Clinton's campaign. 


I come to NY frequently and would welcome the opportunity to sit with you and discuss the best way

I think there's a lot of really strong stuff in here, really nice work Dan - one small suggestion that might help 
achieve what Joel is flagging here could be to bring the recipe for gridlock language up in the speech so that it's 
connected to the framing graph on delivering real results - so that shes presenting the clear choice early on.

I think John is right and there is so much kitchen sink, I'm losing the core argument. I've read the speech twice and I'm not

sound bites that we would love to see picked up every day. I thought the short version that were sent around on the 18 th 
are closer to the essence the of the argument and instead of trying to put some "issues" "plans" I would pare down and 
have a policies/solutions that animate and reflect the values that are driving her: fairness, lifting each other up, having 
each others backs. 

All the candidates have the experts stumped (Carson early; Trump; Cruz, Sanders) are all focusing on the core values they 
hold and are fighting for a simple vision of where we want them to be. I think we have the latter with real differences in 
people's lives but we're not hitting on values enough (why she is fighting for each thing) as the linchpin between what she 
will do on the policy side and the real differences those will make in peoples lives.

Team, attached is a full draft of a speech based on the outline we gave HRC yesterday. At its core is the argument that 
Sanders' ideas will lead to gridlock, not action, and Americans can't wait to see results. 

This is about 2800 words, which is roughly 25 minutes. So cuts welcome. 

I need to get to HRC and WJC soon, so I apologize about the short-turn around but would love reactions ASAP. 

Thank you.

The latest stunt from the GOP - to stop President Obama from doing his constitutional duty and filling 
the vacancy on the Supreme Court - has us FUMING. 

Their antics are proof positive we've GOT to elect a Democratic Majority this fall. But the GOP is going 
to have their eyes on our FEC report to see one thing: if we've got the strength to hold them 
accountable for their failure to do their job. 

That is why before midnight tonight we've got to make sure we close the gap in our 
fundraising totals. John, can you donate to help support President Obama's agenda and 
elect a Democratic Majority in 2016?

Subject: Staff Transition 

Dear Members of the Board, 

After more than a decade of service to the American Progress, Debbie Fine will be leaving us for a fantastic new 
opportunity as the Deputy Director of Global Philanthropy at J.P. Morgan Chase. We are incredibly grateful for her 
years of dedication, hard work, effective leadership and sense of humor. Debbie has been part of American Progress 
from the very early days, helping build its infrastructure and establishing a legal team that protects CAP without 
hindering its programmatic goals. She has been a true team player, filling many roles as needed over the years. Few 
have worked as hard to make CAP the place it is and I will miss her spirit as well as her counsel. 

I am pleased to announce that Alex DeMots will be leading the legal team as our new General Counsel. Alex has served 
as in-house counsel at American Progress for more than seven years, and as VP and Deputy General Counsel since 
2011. During that time he has been an effective leader, helping to guide the legal team with excellent problem solving 
skills, and working with American Progress staff to ensure legal compliance in all manner of activities. He has been 
particularly effective in guiding us with judiciousness as the world of nonprofits and electoral activities has been 
radically altered. I know he will make a strong General Counsel. In addition to his years of experience at American 
Progress, he served as counsel to Chairman Robert D. Lenhard at the Federal Election Commission and spent two 
years as an associate with Trister, Ross, Schadler & Gold, specializing in advising nonprofit organizations on the full 
range of issues relevant to them. Alex is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center and the University of 
Michigan. 

I am recommending that the board appoint Alex as the new Corporate Secretary effective April 20, 2015. As 
described above, he has a wealth of experience in legal matters impacting tax exempt organizations, including best

practices in governance, and he has already worked side by side with Debbie during his tenure here on these issues. 

If you agree with my recommendation, please email Debbie Fine to let her know at your earliest convenience 
at dfine@americanprogress.org , and complete the attached Unanimous Consent and submit it to Debbie by 
email or fax to 202-315-0453 by Thursday April 16. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. 

I look forward to seeing you in May. 

Thank you as always for all that you do,

Dear Hannah, the attached 2-page analysis on corporations that have invested in improving their environmental impact may be 
of interest for the President. It also concisely makes a case for doing something at CGI on corporations' planning for water 
resources - would have benefit of helping businesses bottom lines while also [hopefully] reducing environmental degradation.

I don't know much about the issue but zeroing out fossil fuels in 35 years seems unrealistic. We're considering

Martin O'Malley: Zero out fossil fuels by 2050 

http://www.usatoday.com/storv/opinion/2015/06/18/pope-francis-encvclical-clean-enerav-technology- 

campaign-column/28859409/ 

Martin O'Malley 9:19 a.m. EOT June 18, 2015 

Today, Pope Francis published his first encyclical — an official teaching document to all 1 .2 billion Catholics 
— on the moral imperative of addressing climate change. He is not alone among leaders of world faiths 
making such a clarion call for action. 

We have come a long way as a nation in making ourselves more energy independent. Now is the time to 
take this progress to the next level — the future of our country and our planet depends on it. 

New technologies now put an independent clean energy future decidedly within our reach as a nation. 

But reach for it we must. 

Clean energy represents the biggest business and job creation opportunity we've seen in a hundred years. 
And reliance on local, renewable energy sources means a more secure nation and a more stable world. 

Given the grave threat that climate change poses to human life on our planet, we have not only a business 
imperative but a moral obligation to future generations to act immediately and aggressively. 

This is why protecting the United States from the devastating impact of climate change — while capitalizing on 
the job creation opportunity of clean energy — is at the center of my campaign for president . 

All of us can acknowledge that with an "all of the above strategy," President Obama has made the United 
States more energy independent in every category of fuels, including oil and gas. 

But America did not land a man on the moon with an "all of the above strategy." It was an engineering 
challenge. 

Making the transition to a clean energy future is also an engineering challenge. 

We cannot meet the climate challenge with an all-of-the-above energy strategy, or by drilling off our coasts, or

by building pipelines that bring oil from tar sands in Canada. 

Instead, we must be intentional and committed to one over-arching goal as a people: a full, complete transition 
to renewable energy — and an end to our reliance on fossil fuels. 

Saving the world is a goal worthy of a great people. It is also good business for the United States of America. 

I believe, within 35 years, our country can, and should, be 100% powered by clean energy, supported by 
millions of new jobs. To reach this goal we must accelerate that transition starting now. 

As president, on day one, I would use my executive power to declare the transition to a clean energy future 
the number one priority of our Federal Government. 

I would create a new Clean Energy Jobs Corps to partner with communities to retrofit buildings to be more 
energy efficient, improve local resiliency, create new green spaces, and restore and expand our forests so 
they can absorb more greenhouse gases. 

I would retrofit federal buildings to the highest efficiency standards and require new federal buildings to be 
net-zero, require the federal fleet to be subject to low- or zero-emissions purchasing agreements, and require 
all federally-funded infrastructure projects to meet climate resiliency standards 

As president, I would direct the Environmental Protection Agency to take aggressive action to limit greenhouse 
gases: expanding rules to other large sources of emissions beyond power plants, adopting a zero-tolerance 
policy for methane leaks from current oil and gas production, and setting higher energy efficiency standards 
for new buildings while requiring energy costs to be transparent to building tenants and purchasers. 

And I would reject projects like Keystone XL and drilling off our coasts and in Antarctica and Alaska . 
Furthermore, I would keep domestically produced oil and gas in the U.S., instead of selling it abroad — 
unless there is a clear strategic security rationale. 

Beyond executive actions, I would make clean energy deployment — and employment — a first-order priority. 

I would set a national, cross-sector Renewable Electricity Standard so our nation is powered by 100% clean 
energy by 2050, and a national goal of doubling energy efficiency within 15 years. Many states like California 
and Maryland are already leading the way forward for the United States. 

I would fight for federal legislation for a cap on carbon emissions from all sources, with proceeds from permits 
returned to lower and middle-class families, transition assistance, and new jobs with the Clean Energy Corps. 

As president, I would support a Clean Energy Financing Authority to support projects to increase efficiency 
and resiliency upgrades in cities, towns, and rural communities nationwide. 

I would prioritize modernizing our electric grid to evolve to support localized, renewable energy generation, 
reduce electricity waste and increase security from sabotage or attack. 

And I would increase our investment in basic clean energy research so the U.S. can reclaim the lead on 
energy innovation, including advancing development, deployment, transmission and storage for renewable 
energy and new efficiency technologies. 

The fact is, there is no either/or choice between our prosperity and protecting our planet — we can create a

future where there are more jobs, and a future with a livable climate. And there is no future for humankind 
without a livable climate. 

The reality, as I learned in Maryland, is that the two goals are indivisible. Driven by ambitious targets, we 
created thousands of new jobs while deploying clean energy technology and reducing greenhouse gas 
pollution by nearly 10% over just seven years. 

As the nation, we can do far more — with a bold vision for America's clean energy future and the strong 
leadership needed to get it done. 

Martin O'Malley has served as the governor of Maryland, mayor of Baltimore, and a city councilor — earning a 
reputation as a bold, progressive, and pragmatic executive who is willing to take on our toughest shared 
challenges.

Hello Joe and Bob, 


I hope this finds you well! 


Mr. Podesta has asked us to check on a few things for him with respect to 12C. I don't 
know if these things fall under your responsibilities, but if not, perhaps you can point me 
in the right direction: 


- the French doors in the living room do not close properly (after the hardware 
replacement) 


- there is a strip of metal missing between two of the glass panes on the right-hand 
French door in the living room 


- there is some peeling paint on the ceiling of the living room (close to the French doors) 
that is in need of repair 


- there is a small defect in the window frame on the south-facing window that needs to be 
repaired 


Please advise how we can get these items addressed and resolved. 


Thanks

Created some contrast with Sanders: 

Said congress won't pass free education. And used some of the same language from earlier today. 

WJC just said that it's fine to say you're for a single payer system. He acknowledged that if 
we didn't have something to build on, maybe it's what we should be doing. But, that we 
can't afford to rip away the progress we've made - that we need to build on what we have.

He made the same Wall St. argument/contrast he did earlier today. He also used the bit on Bernie calling 
Planned Parenthood on others the establishment. Adlibbed a bit this time saying that just because 
people aren't for sure doesn't mean that they're the establishment. 

Said people who can afford to pay for their children's education (i.e.: him) should not get it for free. That 
everyone should contribute their fair share. That it'd unfair to take away money from those who need it. 

Said the 90's were good, but that we need to upgrade that to get similar results in new and challenging 
times. 

Fun fact: As it turns out, and per WJC, watermelons aren't very good when they're north of 40 lbs - 
because they're mostly water. He offered as much after reminding the crowd here that the world record for 
watermelons stood at some 270 lbs, at one point. And, that it was grown in AR while he was Governor. 

Remarks 

About 350 more lowans showed up to see WJC here in Muscatine. 

The field organizer (Fernando) that introduced WJC was pretty good. 

WJC shared a fun little story about watermelons & acknowledged that delicious wine is made in 
Muscatine. 

Piggybacking off of what Fernando said during his intro, WJC started by talking CHIP and health care. 

He transitioned and shared a couple of the stories of the folks he's met while out here. 

He then spent some time framing the election and laying out what's at stake. Covered college affordability, 
ISIS, immigration, trickle down economics (we did it before, we can do it again), community-police 
relations, voting rights, and gun safety. 

Had some fun with the GOP, saying they "name and blame." Used his cold/Obama line. And said they've 
now resorted to blame HRC. 

He created some contrast with Bernie. (Insert language above). 

Closed by delivering all of the biographical points.

Summarized Bernie's closing argument as follows: "yeah, I'll break up the big banks, tax millionaires 
and billionaires, and give you free education." Called Bernie's argument pretty catchy. But, said we 
need real answers to real problems. That it may not be emotionally satisfying, but that it's the truth. 
And went on to articulate HRC's colleague affordability plan. 

Said her opponent's health care plan is fairly new, that it was released a couple of days ago - ahead 
of the last debate. He then articulated HRC's plan and made the practical argument. Closed by 
saying that we need to "focus the power of the presidency to further improve the ACA." 

Tackled Bernie's establishment comment as well. Argued forcefully that NOT Planned Parenthood, 
NOR the progressive papers, NOR any of the people who work on progressive issues, OR the 
progressive newspapers in IA and NH that have endorsed her are part of the establishment. 

Said that he and Obama are the only two Presidents since Eisenhower to have Republican Sec.'s of 
Defense. 

Said America's approval rating went up 20 percent while she was SoS. 

Remarks 

350 deep here in Fairfield. 

WJC was fired up 

Said he saw the strength and diversity of America yesterday while traveling throw IA. He shared the 
stories of some of the folks he's met since being here, covering the issues of health care, 
prescription drug abuse, and immigration. Said he was telling these stories because the election was 
about them (the people). 

He then dove into articulating what's at stake these elections. 

Said most folks are angry because change hasn't caught up to them yet. 

Said it isn't close. HRC's the best change-maker. 

(Insert all of the Bernie language). 

Covered the economy and said we need to recapture the American Dream. Brought out his charts, 
compared and contrasted his performance with Reagan's, and said only one person can get us back 
on track. 

Covered ISIS, Muslims, and the GOP's fear-mongering. 

Said the doesn't want to run against her, so they're constantly attacking her. And, went on to offer all 
of the biographical points he's been making. 

Closed with his bit on Flint.

400 strong here in Ottumwa. They were pretty rowdy. 

***Over 1,600 lowans heard WJC make the case for HRC today, (h/t Patrick).*** 

Remarks were good. WJC was rapid firing. Stuck to his usual construct and was 
forceful about why he thinks she's the best change-maker he's ever met. 

No Q's on the ropeline. 

We're, theoretically, done for the day. 

Color | New | Flags 

Making the point that income inequality has been something he's both cared about and has 
credibility on, WJC said he's probably given more speeches about income inequality than 
anyone currently running for office. 

Offered this fun fact: Turkey's can see better than humans. 

Said we need answers over angers. Hope over fear. And action over rhetoric. Said HRC is the 
only one equipped to help us achieve all of that. 

Made some contrast on health care. 

Said he's tickled that she's tagged as part of the establishment. That her opponent calls 
Planned Parenthood the establishment. And then went on to use his language on HRC going 
to Wall St. to call them out. 

Remarks 

Started by effectively articulating what's at stake & why people are apprehensive about the 
future. Said we need to finish the recovery started under Obama and that we need to bring 
back the middle class. 

Said we can do it because we've done it before, (pulled out his charts and gave Reagan the 
business). 

Said we shouldn't turn our backs on important issues or turn Muslims into demons. That we 
should be doing this together. 

Covered BLM, immigration, prescription and heroin drub abuse, dark money in politics, and 
voting rights. 

Said that while it's important not to let the GOP not to rip away all the progress we've made, we 
need to work together - that we need more friends and fewer enemies. 

He then moved on to the issue of guns, which he fleshed out a little bit. And then ISIS. And the 
frustration folks are feeling. 

After he made the turn, he spent a significant chunk of time on all of the good things HRC has 
made happen - as a private citizen, as a Sen., and as SoS. 

Covered health care. 

And, the sanction on Iran. He praised HRC's effort profusely and suggested that both Obama 
and Kerry have acknowledged how important they've been.

Was asked by NBC how he feels going into the home stretch. He said he feels good. That 
folks are being receptive. That he's made the case he's wanted to make and that HRC 
has worked hard. That all that's left now is to leave it all on the floor.

Said that he is indeed mad about all of the problems we're facing (i.e.: college 
affordability and kids being crippled by debt), but that ultimately what we need a change- 
maker. And that said change-maker is HRC. 

Remarks 

WJC was pretty fired up here in Washington, where WJC addressed 300 people, which 
I'm told is a pretty decent-sized crowd. 

He started by arguing that we can't afford not to elect HRC, because she would lead with 
more friends and fewer enemies. 

Talked about HRC's toughness, using the 11-hour Benghazi hearing as an example. 

Forcefully pointed out that she's the only candidate to have gone to Wall St. to warn that 
if they didn't cut it out with home mortgage securities that they'd drive the economy into a 
ditch. 

Pointed out the HRC's best friend from Chicago and dozens of people from AR are here 
knocking doors on her behalf, that it should tell you all you need to know. That she's isn't 
anything like the caricature that the GOP likes to paint. 

He then dedicated a chunk of time speaking about all of HRC's accomplishments a private 
citizen, as a Senator from NY, and as SoS. 

He also created a bit of contracts on health care, but stuck to what he's been saying this 
whole time. 

Said she would make good things happen on the good days (i.e.: when he reversed 
trickle down economics or signed peace in Ireland), on the bad days (i.e.: the day 
President Obama must've had after San Bernardino), and also on the other days.

Said the GOP can’t kill or occupy or bomb everyone to the stone age. 

Brought his charts out again. Seemed to work better here, with WJC drawing a few 
laughs. 

Covered health care a little bit, making the practical argument about not having 60 
votes in the Senate. Said that he believes that the Republican Governors that 
haven’t taken the MedicAid Expansion money will eventually do so, because it 
creates jobs. Didn’t mention Sanders by name, FYI. 

Said that the success of a President depends on what your positions are and what 
you know, but that it also depends on what you can do and whether or not you can 
work with others — that there’s a difference between a change-talker and a 
change-maker. 

Said that his sick of all this cynicism and all of the yelling, because it has nothing to 
do with people. That if folks are sick of it too, they should support a change-maker. 
And, that’s HRC. 

Remarks 

WJC started by articulating what’s at stake, and why we can’t afford to let 
Republicans reverse everything that Pres. Obama has accomplished. 

In framing what’s at stake, he used climate change, voting rights, immigration, ISIS, 
and the economy under him (VS Reagan) as examples. 

He then went on to talk about some of HRC’s plans and positions, particularly health 
care and drug abuse. (Insert contrast language). 

Had a little fun with the GOP, reminding folks about their 3D strategy. And, how they 
like to blame others for all of our problems, mainly Mexicans, Muslims, and 
President Obama and HRC.

know how to deal with her or cover her or anything, you 
know. But it's evident. 

QUESTION: Do you think we're covering her wrong? 

BILL CLINTON: I'll tell you another example. Her best 
friends from childhood are coming down here, I think starting 
tomorrow from Chicago to canvass for her. She hasn't lived in 
Arkansas since [inaudible] January? 90 of them almost, 89

At their own expense and a lot of them can't afford the trip. 
But they're doing it because they know her and they believe

And that's all that matters. The rest of the stuff-

that guy in the CNN Town Hall meeting? He said, "I was a 
lukewarm supporter of yours." He said, "I saw that 1 1 hours. I 
am done [inaudible]. Nobody else in America could have done 
that." 

QUESTION: Do you think that [inaudible]? 

BILL CLINTON: I think it helped. 

BILL CLINTON: But I think it all helps. I think the more 
people see her, [inaudible] they'll know what she cares about. 
But I think having her friends out there helps. 

QUESTION: Do you think that Benghazi testimony was the 
strongest moment of her campaign? 

BILL CLINTON: No, I think she's had a lot of strong 
moments. 

QUESTION: Senator Sanders has gone after your wife for 
holding a fundraiser tonight. What's your response to that? 

She spends enough time in Iowa? 

BILL CLINTON: I think the far more important thing is before 
this economy cratered, she's the only person running for 
president in either party who went to Wall Street and said 
"You guys are dragging the economy in the ditch. You'd 
better change." 

QUESTION: Do you think [inaudible]? 

BILL CLINTON: Thank you. What? 

QUESTION: Are you surprised Bernie Sanders isn't gung ho 
about a debate in New Hampshire? 

BILL CLINTON: I don't know. I haven't thought about it. I 
think she said she'd do it if everybody showed up. I think 
debates are good for people, because they flesh out, you get 
to hear people talk about why they propose to do certain 
things. 

And I personally think she's right about the healthcare thing, 
based on my experience. I have a -- nobody ever even got a 
healthcare bill for universal coverage out of committee from 
Harry Truman to me. But we got it out of two committees. 

[Inaudible] situation. [Inaudible] when the Affordable Care Act 
passed. I was doing handstands of ecstacy [inaudible]. It's a 
lot easier to from 90 to 100 than from zero to 100 through 60 

votes in the Senate and the House has voted 60 times to

repeal it. 

So I think the debates, though, they let you answer whatever 
questions people have, whatever they have. The public 
decides what they think is relevant. 

QUESTION: [Inaudible] pie in the sky, that it just isn't 
possible. Is she angry enough to win in an election that we've 
seen where anger really has paid off? 

BILL CLINTON: What? 

QUESTION: Donald Trump is pretty angry. He's resonating 
with voters. Is she angry enough to win [inaudible]? 

BILL CLINTON: It's important, if you're in this position, to 
have no feelings about that except you're trying to help 
people. She's angry that so many Americans have not 
participated in the recovery, have had their own potential and 
their [inaudible], their children [inaudible]. 

She's angry that we haven't done anything for these areas 
that have been left out and left behind, like Coal Country. 
She's angry that we haven't done enough to help people in 
this prescription drug and opiate epidemic. She just thinks 
about -- it's like when she called the Mayor in Flint: "What can 
I do to help?" That's what drives her. 

What I said tonight is exactly who she's been for ever since 
the first day I met her. Do all the good you can. Her instinct is 
not who can I attack, who can I blame? It's not that you 
shouldn't ask people to take responsibility when they make 
mistakes, but her immediate instinct is what can I do to make it 
better. And that's what we need right now. 


QUESTION: President Clinton, when you think about the 
general election map if Donald Trump blows this thing out and 
it's a Hillary Clinton match against Trump, what should voters 
be thinking about this week in terms of what Bernie Sanders' 
candidacy would look like up against Donald Trump versus 
your wife? 

BILL CLINTON: I don't think like that. I think what voters 
should be thinking about this week is who is most likely to 
make my life, my children and grandchildren's lives and this 
country a place of shared prosperity, a force of security and 
peace and a place where we come together around solving 
our common social problems like [inaudible]. Who would be 
better?

QUESTION: But do you- 

BILL CLINTON: The politics will take care of itself if people 
make the right decision about who's the most likely to have a 
positive impact. 

QUESTION: And do you think the conventional wisdom will 
matter here for Donald Trump. I mean, if you've got Cruz 
who's got a better ground game, but Trump's got five million 
Twitter followers? 

BILL CLINTON: I have no idea. I have no idea. It depends 
on whether it's an evidence-free or an evidence-matters 
election. It depends on whether people vote for someone who 
has a real chance to help them make their lives better. Those 
things are imponderable. 

Anger can be a good thing, properly channeled. 
Apprehensiveness can be a good thing, properly channeled. 

It depends on how it shakes out. All we can do, all she can do 
is be who she is, who she's been all her life. I think it will be in 
the end what the American people want. 

QUESTION: Do you think those people who are really angry 
-- do you see an opportunity for a crossover between a 
Clinton and a Trump voter? 

BILL CLINTON: Well, I think first of all she's the very first 
person to say, "Hey I know they vote Republican. We ought to 
do something for Coal Country." We have not done a good 
job in America in dealing with the areas that get hurt from 
globalization or from the rise of climate change or anything 
else. 

Coal employment in American peaked 95 years ago. It's not 
like we just learned about this. Thousands of jobs were lost 
when President Bush, ostensibly a pro-coal president was in 
office because he couldn't stop the rise of natural gas. 

QUESTION: Yes. 

BILL CLINTON: And so look, I think there's 
an opportunity for everybody to get votes everywhere if you 
run a people-centered campaign and you trust people to 
think. You've got to really trust people. You've got to say, 
"There's a lot of stuff you've got to let go." 

There's a lot of stuff you've got to step away from. If you run a 
people-centered campaign that's future oriented, I think 
there's opportunity everywhere.

Took about 10 questions on the ropeline, most notably 
one about the NH "debate" and Sanders' decision to 
skip it. WJC said it's up to Sanders to decide what he'll 
do, but that HRC has said that if folks agreed to show 
up that she'd be there. 

The rest were Q's about the economy, Trump 
channeling anger, and the state of the race here. WJC 
stuck to most of what he's been saying. 

He didn't break anything, but I'll send a transcript 
around shortly nonetheless. 

Color | New | Flags 

WJC opened his speech by saying that HRC was in 
Adele earlier today. And that soon enough folks here will 
have the entire family in the state. He joked that 
Charlotte will be the difference-maker this election. That 
she can persuade him to do anything. 

Recycled his 3Ds line & joked that you almost have to 
admire the GOP, because what's a fact here and there - 
that they live in a fact-free world. 

Said we can't allow for the perfect to be the enemy of 
the good, that HRC will get the show on the road. That 
there's only one person who's a proven change maker 
on hostile territory and that's really important. 

Reiterated that every single attempt to pass health care 
has always required 60 votes. That he and HRC were 
the first to do so. And that yeah they weren't successful, 
but that she ultimately got CHIP with Kennedy. 

Said Newt told him that HRC was brilliant in the senate. 

Said we have to deal with what we've got, i.e.: sixty 
Republicans in Congress. 

Used his Flint bit, which got noticed. 

References the Obama interview, saying he said that 
she's ready to be President. 


Remarks 

He started by covering a couple of issues, including 
climate change and immigration.

He then had a bit of fun with the GOP, saying that 
they're masters at labeling and blaming. (Insert 3Ds 
line). 

Followed that up by making a lot of the biographical 
points he's been making on the trail. He talked about 
her time as a public citizen (insert health care line), as a 
Senator from NY, and as SoS. 

Covered the economy: asked rhetorically: You don't 
mind if Warren Buffet makes money if he creates jobs, 
don't you?; and made the case why HRC will make the 
economy work for ever American again. He also 
said she's the only person running for President that 
went to Wall St. to speak against speculation. 

Talked Flint. (Used his usual line). 

Closed pretty strongly by saying she's the best change 
maker he's met. (Insert Obama line).

Sorry, on phone so focused more on overall thoughts than line edits. 
Can call you directly if any of this is unclear. Sending to all so people

I originally flagged HRC's Maddow remarks as potentially problematic 
in part because her wording closely linked her to two unfavorable 
policies of the past even as no one in the community was asking her 
to "own" them. Given that, my recommendation would be to make this 
statement about just her, her evolution, and her record -- not bring in 
WJC. 


Relatedly, if we release a statement tonight, it will very clearly be in 
response to the Maddow interview. To the extent we can, I advocate 
for owning that so that we can clean this up completely, rightly 
position her as a champion of LGBT issues, and make sure we move 
on from any discussion of looming amendments or her being involved 
in passing either DADT or DOMA. Without getting into the weeds, can 
we say that the broader point is that the country is in a different place 
now on LGBT issues -- and thank goodness it is -- and that she's so 
happy each policy has been placed in the dustbin of history? 


Last thought: I have raised this a few times to a smaller number of 
people on this thread but will flag this for the larger group as well. At 
Keene State College, she specifically cited friends playing a part in 
her evolution, which we echo here. That's fine, IMO, and quite 
believable. But if I were a reporter and wanted to keep the evolution 
story alive, I would start asking which friends she was talking to and 
ask us to provide them. Not a problem per se, but I think it is worth 
flagging now so we aren't caught by surprise later.

STATEMENT 


In 2013, when the Supreme Court was considering whether to 
uphold the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Bill and I explained 
publicly how and why we became strong supporters of marriage 
equality. Bill, who signed DOMA nearly twenty years ago after an 
overwhelming vote in Congress, called the law a discriminatory 
vestige of a less tolerant America and urged the Court to strike it 
down. I added my voice in support of marriage equality “personally 
and as a matter of policy and law.” As I said then, LGBT Americans 
are full and equal citizens and they deserve the full and equal 
rights of citizenship. Like so many others, my personal views have 
been shaped over time by people I have known and loved, by my 
experience representing our nation on the world stage, my 
devotion to law and human rights, and the guiding principles of my 
faith. That’s why, as a Senator, I pushed for laws that would 
extend protections to the LGBT community in the workplace and 
that would make violence towards LGBT individuals a hate crime. 
And as Secretary of State, I put LGBT rights on the global agenda 
and told the world that “gay rights are human rights and human 
rights are gay rights.” In my speech last night in Iowa, I didn’t look 
back to the America of the past, I looked forward to the America we 
need to build together. I pledged to fight for LGBT Americans who, 
despite all our progress, in many places can still get married on 
Saturday and fired on Monday just because of who they are and 
who they love. In this campaign and as President, I will keep 
fighting for equality and opportunity for every American.

Since I was asked on Friday about the Defense of Marriage Act in an interview on

Republicans in Congress to distract attention from the real issues facing the 
country by using gay marriage, which had very little support then, as a wedge 
issue in the election. The legislation passed by overwhelming veto-proof margins in 
both houses of Congress and President Clinton signed it with serious reservations 
he expressed at the time. Luckily the country has evolved way beyond this in the 
last 20 years and most Americans, including the Supreme Court, now embrace 
LGBT equality. We are a better country for it. Although there is much work that 
remains, and I'm eager to help advance the day when we are all truly equal.

some were moving in that direction. Washington, as a 
result, was swirling with all manner of possible 
responses, some quite draconian. As a bipartisan group 
of former senators stated in their March 1 amicus brief to 
the Supreme Court, many supporters of the bill known as 
DOMA believed that its passage “would defuse a 
movement to enact a constitutional amendment banning 
gay marriage, which would have ended the debate for a 
generation or more.” It was under these circumstances 
that DOMA came to my desk, opposed by only 81 of the 
535 members of Congress. 

On March 27, DOMA will come before the Supreme 
Court, and the justices must decide whether it is 
consistent with the principles of a nation that honors 
freedom, equality and justice above all, and is therefore 
constitutional. As the president who signed the act into 
law, I have come to believe that DOMA is contrary to 
those principles and, in fact, incompatible with our 
Constitution. 

Because Section 3 of the act defines marriage as being 
between a man and a woman, same-sex couples who 
are legally married in nine states and the District of 
Columbia are denied the benefits of more than a 
thousand federal statutes and programs available to 
other married couples. Among other things, these 
couples cannot file their taxes jointly, take unpaid leave 
to care for a sick or injured spouse or receive equal 
family health and pension benefits as federal civilian 
employees. Yet they pay taxes, contribute to their 
communities and, like all couples, aspire to live in 
committed, loving relationships, recognized and 
respected by our laws. 

When I signed the bill, I included a statement with the 
admonition that “enactment of this legislation should not, 
despite the fierce and at times divisive rhetoric 
surrounding it, be understood to provide an excuse for 
discrimination.” Reading those words today, I know now 
that, even worse than providing an excuse for 
discrimination, the law is itself discriminatory. It should be 
overturned. 

We are still a young country, and many of our landmark 
civil rights decisions are fresh enough that the voices of 
their champions still echo, even as the world that 
preceded them becomes less and less familiar. We have 
yet to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment, 
but a society that denied women the vote would seem to 
us now not unusual or old-fashioned but alien. I believe 
that in 2013 DOMA and opposition to marriage equality 
are vestiges of just such an unfamiliar society. 

Americans have been at this sort of a crossroads often 
enough to recognize the right path. We understand that, 
while our laws may at times lag behind our best natures, 
in the end they catch up to our core values. One 
hundred fifty years ago, in the midst of the Civil War,

President Abraham Lincoln concluded a message to 
Congress by posing the very question we face today: “It 
is not ‘Can any of us imagine better?’ but ‘Can we all 
do better?’” 

The answer is of course and always yes. In that spirit, I 
join with the Obama administration, the 
petitioner Edith Windsor , and the many other 
dedicated men and women who have engaged in this 
struggle for decades in urging the Supreme Court to 
overturn the Defense of Marriage Act.

Think all of us are getting 
incoming from friends in LGBT 
community about DOMA 
comments. 


HuffPo has reached out to us. I 
heard from Socarides that NYT 
was doing something. 


I have no understanding of the 
issue - but clear this has a head 
of steam. 


Brian can put a statement out, but 
policy and political need to tell us 
what you want us to do. 


I would suggest a conference call 
with relevant parties for how we 
are going to handle all around - 
press, groups, politics. I have a 
bad schedule for rest of day and 
may not be able to be on such a 
call but don’t think I am needed. 
We just need guidance and then 
on political end think we need a 
plan for how to hose down 
anxious friends.

Subject: Environmental Majority Council Update 



LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS 


Dear John, 

In the face of the most anti-environment House of Representatives in history, LCV has succeeded in leveraging our unique blend of insider 
tactics and outsider pressure to make progress on climate change and to protect our air, water and wild places. 

Your partnership in this work continues to have a real impact. Already you've helped mobilize tens of thousands of LCV members across the 
country to call on Resident Obama to take decisive steps to curb dangerous carbon pollution. And, you've helped urge his administration to use 
the bully pulpit to elevate the issue of climate disruptions and climate solutions in the public discourse. 

So I hope you were as proud as I was when President Obama went before Congress and drew a line in the sand for Congress to act on 
climate change. Congratulations and thank you. Our journey is far from over, but we are moving forward. 

Enjoy the Environmental Majority Council update below and as always, please reach out if you have any questions or feedback. 

Onward, 

Gene 

"For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change .. .If Congress won't act soon to protect future 
generations, I will. " 

- President Obama, 2013 State of the Union address 

LCV Announces 2012 National Environmental Scorecard 

The League of Conservation Voters recently released the 2012 National Environmental Scorecard , the go-to yard stick for evaluating the 
environmental records of members of congress for more than 40 years. Here's the score for 2012: 

- 85 House members and 37 Senators earned a score of 90 percent or greater on the 2012 Scorecard. 

- 1 75 House members and 1 7 Senators earned an abysmal score of 1 0 percent or less. 

- The average House score in 2012 was 42 percent and the average Senate score was 56 percent. 

Of course, you already know much of this. Given the high stakes before us, we need to reach millions more people to ensure they know how 
their legislator is voting. That's why we've completely overhauled our Scorecard website to make it easier for you to access and share the 
information not just from this year, but every year since the National Environmental Scorecard was first released in 1 971 . If you haven't yet 
seen it, I hope you will take a look by clicking here. 

"Forward on Climate" Rally 

On Sunday, February 1 7th, over 40,000 environmental activists from across the country gathered on the National Mail in Washington, DC to urge 
President Obama to take action on climate policy. The "Forward on Climate" event was the largest climate rally in U.S. history. To read more 
about the rally, please click here and also check out the photo below of the LCV team in action during the rally.

LCV's National Poll on Climate Change Released 

Earlier this month, LCV released a poll conducted before the Resident's State of the Union address which showed an overwhelming 
majority of American voters view climate change as a real and tangible problem, with 61 % saying the effects of climate change are 
already affecting them personally or will in their lifetime. Sixty-five percent of Americans support "the President taking significant steps to 
address climate change now," including 89 percent of Democrats, 62 percent of independents and 38 percent of Republicans. 

To read more about the poll and its results, please read our detailed memo or check out this Huffinaton Post article on the poll. 

LCV & State LCVs Annual Conference in May 

Please join me for LCV and State LCVs Annual Conference, which will be held on May 2-4, 2013 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are at a 
crossroads. We can either rebuild power to solve the greatest environmental challenges before us, or we can allow special interests to gut 
longstanding environmental regulations and foster inaction on the climate crisis. The next generation is counting on us to safeguard our planet. 
With your partnership, we will succeed. 

Join environmental leaders from around the country for an up close experience of what makes the LCV state/national network so strategic and 
effective. If interested in attending or to learn more, please contact Josh Hicks at (202) 454-4565 or josh hicks@lcv.ora . This is one 
conference you don't want to miss! 


G/VeGreen: Because not all money is "green" 

Recently, LCV Action Fund endorsed Congressman Ed Markey, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts. Congressman Markey 
has earned an impressive LCV lifetime score of 94%. Even more importantly, there's no greater environmental champion in Congress than Ed 
Markey. He has made addressing the climate crisis and advancing clean energy the cause of his career. He has also been the biggest 
champion of the effort to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He'll be a true leader in the United States Senate. To read more about 
LCV Action Fund's endorsement of Rep. Ed Markey for U.S. Senate, please click here. 

We hope you will join us in supporting Congressman Ed Markey, who is featured on LCV Action Fund's GiveGreen website, 
www.aiveareen.com , the only bundling website devoted exclusively to raising money for environmental champions and candidates. 
Bundling through GiveGreen magnifies the power of your contribution by calling attention to the environmental values that drive you to support 
the candidate in the first place.

Subject: More than 5% Accessible Housing Units 


More than 5% Accessible Housing Units. Information Bulletin #396 (12/2014) 

Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1 973, recipients of "federal financial assistance" were prohibited 
from discriminating. It took nearly 15 years for HUD to finally promulgate what nondiscrimination meant in the 
housing arena. Then in 1 988, HUD's federal regulations set a floor - 5% of federally funded housing had to be 
mobility accessible for people with mobility disabilities (and another 1% for hearing and visual disabilities). 

For a number of years, the disability community could not enforce the 5% minimum, even though we believed it 
was grossly too low and inadequate. Even with the 1990 and 2000 census, we did not have a handle to push 
higher than 5%. 

Now, with the 2010 census we can. The primary federal financial assistance housing programs that the 2010 
census impacts are the HOME Investment Partnership, Project Based Housing Vouchers, and Public Housing. 

HUD's federal regulation 24 CFR ? 8.22 (c ) states that HUD "may prescribe a high percentage ... upon request 
... based upon demonstration ... based on census data...." 

Disability Advocates - here's a suggested battle plan. First, you must use the Census's "American Fact Finder" 
and determine for your county the percentage of persons "with an ambulatory difficulty" whose incomes are 
under the poverty levels. It is critical to remember that this data does NOT include persons institutionalized in 
nursing homes. Second, you must contact your local HUD FHEO office and request at the least that 
prospectively HUD enforce the increased percentages. 

To wet your interest, here are some preliminary results: Philadelphia, PA, 13.2%; Washington county, PA.15.3%, 
Chicago, III, 9.4%; Baltimore, 13.8%; Orleans Parish, New Orleans, 10.65%; El Paso, TX 9.8%; Lafayette Parish 
in Louisiana, 9.46%. 

No more excuses! The data is now available. It's up to you, the advocates, to make it happen.

Subject: Big Labor Update 


Good evening- 

I sent this email to a broader group this evening since there are many updates that I know touch different 
people. Please let me know if you have any questions. I have shared a tracking spreadsheet with many of you 
on this email thread. If you don't have it, but would like me to share it, let me know. I will track in this 
spreadsheet the member to member work in states that unions have been willing to share. This is not 
exhaustive, but should be a helpful snapshot of where things are moving. I will continue to keep this updated. 

-I am going to be prioritizing outreach to the building trades unions to push them on member program, building 
out hardhats events, outstate buses and staff deployment in state. In Iowa, I am building a GP surrogate 
program to engage trades members with the IA campaign. 

-New Hampshire: Monday weekly at 9am-NH Labor Call starting Monday, December 21st, 2015. Invited: 
National Political Directors, MA labor leaders and NH labor leaders. Each call with be joined by NH Political 
Director Kari Thurman and Mayor Walsh's campaign manager Megan Costello. Kari will be outlining specific 
asks and goals on each call. 

-Iowa: We are planning twice a week Iowa labor calls with National Political Directors and IA labor leaders and 
the IA team starting on Monday, January 1 1 th at 1 :30pm. Monday calls will outline specific weekly goals and 
Thursday calls will report out on sign ups for weekend of action. Before January 1 1th we will continue weekly 
check in calls through the holidays. 

-Nevada: January 7th National Political Directors (confirmed today Monroe, LIUNA) come to Las Vegas to join 
labor meeting with in state building trades leaders and Nevada team, walk thru specific asks and needs. I will be 
doing individual follow up with Carpenters, NEA and AFSCME and Team Nevada this day. 

Immediate Needs for Direction: 

1 . UFCW Endorsement-We are on track to receive the UFCW/RWDSU endorsement on January 1 1th. They will 
do this by phone from Des Moines, IA. They are requesting that HRC, post Black Brown debate, stop by a 
UFCW/RWDSU rally to thank them for the endorsement in Des Moines. Prior to the debate, we can release joint 
statements announcing the endorsement. I have spoken with Team Iowa about this and they are on board with 
a post-debate stop by. I would like to lock this in and then they can start planning. Is this possible? 

2. ATU-Would HRC participate in a public transit forum in Iowa with ATU members? The goal with ATU is to 
keep them neutral. Neutral has value with the AFL-CIO endorsement. They are asking if HRC would be willing 
to participate in the forum in Iowa on January 1 6th. I do not know if this is possible with the IA team. And if not, I 
would like to revisit releasing her teletown hall remarks with ATU members which was very good but because of 
a slight-over statement on privatization release was shut down. I'd like to revisit this as a way for us to offer 
something to ATU if the forum will not work out. 

3. Call Sheets: 4 calls total broken down below=2 new endorsements 

10/18/2016 



This version of Total Mail Converter is not registered. 


Page 100 

-2 calls OPEIU-Former President Mike Goodwin and New President Lanigan (I believe they will endorse after) 

-1 call lAM-Congratulate New Machinists President Bob Martinez 

-1 call IBEW Local 3-There will be three leaders on one call, HRC provides a brief hello and ask for their 
endorsement. They will endorse. See note below. 

4. IATSE (83,000 members + ability to move Nevada program)-They would really like to endorse but they would 
also really like us to sign a MOU with their union to use their members for events. We are using IATSE for our 
events today, just without the MOU. I have spoken with Vice Chair a few times about this and have gotten 
concessions from IATSE. ..specifically that a MOU wouldn't go into effect until April 1st, post early state/March 
primaries. They will also adjust required hotel accommodations from 60 miles to 90 miles of travel, making it a 
very unlikely cost to incur. IATSE has also flagged for me that vendors often do their own mark up of labor 
which a MOU would definitely head off. It would add some additional work for Advance/Vice Chair office to 
facility. Obama signed this agreement in 2012. I'm hopeful we can sign for April 1st. 

Notes: 

1. Labor has added a additional 39 leadership names to Leadership Councils in the following states since 
December 9th: AZ, AR, LA, MS, NE, NC, OH, AK, HI, ID, IL, UT and WA. We continue to reach out and build. 
Thank you to my intern Peter Berg for his help. 

2. I assisted the Massachusetts team with labor build for the NH planning meeting on Friday, December 18th. 
The meeting was well attended and led to setting up NH labor calls on Mondays at 9am with Walsh Team, NH 
team and National/State labor. 

3. MOU-I have noted in the spreadsheet the unions that are supporting a coordinated labor effort. This is 
important and something as a campaign we should continue to strongly encourage. When up and running it will 
be a shared data set of union membership lists for coordinated canvass and phone program. They are 75% of 
the way there but need to finalize a few remaining pieces, most notably where the data will be housed. In 2008, 
it was AFL-CIO LAN but with the NEA it is likely going to be AV VAN. 

4. Hillary Victory Fund-Labor has committed and is sending $865K toward HVF in 2015. There are a few 
additional outstanding requests (noted in the spreadsheet) that should take us over $1 million. I will make follow 
up calls on Monday. 

3. Data Swap-AFSCME is anxious to execute the data swap with us effective Jan. 4th. I'm working with Simon 
Vance on executing this. NEA is on hold until NGPVAN provides additional information. We are hopeful this will 
be resolved soon. The swap is with four early states now and will expand to CO and MN next. 

4. NEA hosting a Early States/March states member message training in Washington DC from Jan. 22nd-24th 
with 5 NEA members from each of the following states to be trained spokespeople/supporters of HRC. States 
participating: CO, MN, VA, KS, FL, SC, AR, GA, TX, LA, MS, Ml, MO, NC, OH. They have asked us to join for 
this training and I am working with paid media. 

5. January 12th-We are hosting a General President message meeting with the campaign. John Podesta is 
hosting with the paid media team. We will be inviting National Political Directors as well in Washington DC from 
9am-1 1am. 

6. I will be sending separately a list of 2016 Union Conventions that many endorsed unions are setting as 
priorities since we missed conventions in 2015. I just want to start flagging now and will send a comprehensive 
list very soon. 

7. AFL-CIO Endorsement Numbers and Update: 

Based on per capita and the real AFL-CIO vote, which we need 2/3 or 6.2 million members of the 9.3 million 
AFL-CIO members. 


AFL-CIO Executive Council meetings February 21 -22nd, which seems to be remain the most likely timeframe for

HRC endorsement. 

Today HFA has 4.1 million (44%) 

Today Sanders has 831,908 (9%) 

Including UFCW, IATSE, OPEIU, SMART, Seafarers, MEBA, TWU=1 ,548,981 (New HFA AFL-CIO Total 5.6 
million) 

In order to cross 6.2 million I think the most possible outreach is UAW (400K) plus the Letter Carriers (181 K). 


• UFCW/RWDSU (1,030,981 members + Iowa field support + NY phone space + NH buses)-lf we can confirm 
HRC to do a endorsement event in Iowa with President Marc Perrone and Stuart Appelbaum, they will 
endorse via EBoard phone vote on January 1 1th. I've spoken with Matt Paul and he is supportive of the 
idea. In addition, they would like help with delegates (I have spoken with David), reconnect with policy (I 
can facilitate) and HRC town hall with members before March in a March primary state (perhaps in 
Colorado on immigration, where UFCW is very big). 

• OPEIU (102,401 members + deployed people for HRC in 2008)-The wanted to endorse on December 14th 
in Midtown but HRC schedule couldn't permit. Two phone calls, 1. Outgoing President Michael Goodwin 
and 2. Incoming new President Rich Lanigan, would very likely just get the endorsement done. Goodwin 
retired at the 12/14 meeting, which was why the push then. 

• IBEW Local 3 (10,000 members across NY + buses to NY + NY phone bankers)-! am working with the big 
New York IBEW Local union to make a independent endorsement form their Inti soon. The Inti is allowing 
local unions to endorse this year (crazy but true). Its important that we get a IBEW Local union 
endorsement on the board because Sanders has been collecting small ones in the NE, approximately 8 
local IBEW unions. IBEW Local 3 is very open to endorsing, they would just need one call with their three 
top leaders on the phone with HRC, she'd ask for their support, and they'll do it. 

• Other unions to come on board, before February 1st I estimate: Seafarers, MEBA, SMART, TWU (total 
members=333,000 members) 

• ATU-We need to keep them neutral. After CWA's endorsement, ATU would be the next to go to Sanders. 
I've been dragging my feet and their requests slow walking but we're at a point where we need to decide 
engagement. I don't want to lose them to Sanders but I think it creates more distension within the AFL-CIO, 
which is not helpful if we want to put this to bed. 


Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Subject: Island energy 

Hi Ami, 

I wanted to keep you in the loop because we've talked about this before, and because I know the President is 
passionate about helping islands. 

The UNDP has indicated they want to support CCI, via the SIDS DOCK Island Fund. This is a $100mn fund that 
was established at the Copenhagen conference ($40mn has been raised to date). 

We are considering a new approach, to structure the initiative as a "contest" - challenging the private sector (ie 
GE, Siemens, Vestas, etc) to design an innovative island-wide renewable energy plan. Something that takes a 
specific island to a specific target - say 80% or even 100% renewables (wind, solar, waste, hydro). The 
"winning" plan would be financed via the SIDS DOCK fund. 

The UN feels they have the funding to support 5-6 participating islands, although realistically only 2-3 island 
governments will be "ready" to be a part of the program this year. Possibilities include Mauritius, Maldives, 
Grenada, Tonga and others, but it's still TBD. 

The idea would be to announce the initiative and the contest at the Rio 20 conference in June. My question to 
you is whether there may be interest from the Clinton Foundation in jointly sponsoring this, and possibly 
announcing the winners at CGI next September? Especially if the theme of the event will be energy. 

The early part of next year would be spent getting this message out to island governments, vetting the potential 
target islands, structuring the program, etc. 

Concurrently, CCI would develop the legislative roadmap, business models, etc, that would be needed to 
implement the projects. 

All of this is still in concept stage, and we're likely going to meet with the UN again in New York in early January 
along with representatives from SIDS (Small Island Developing States) to develop this further. 

Would love to hear your thoughts... 

Happy holidays 

Darien

I'm still mulling/experimenting with how to do "stakes" in abbreviated form. I worry these two, while on-message, lack the 
galvanizing urgency required for the endgame (especially versus a "Join the Revolution" pitch happening on the other 
side). We have message to communicate, stakes to raise, and urgency to convey. In a perfect world, this endgame slogan 
would help our side with the emotive contrasts likely to evolve between now and February - Fresh v. Stale, Electric v. 

Static, Exciting v. Flo-Flum, etc. Anyway, still scribbling in the hopes something like that might emerge...

I'm not sure how we do that in a tagline. He asked if this group could you think about that. If 
we cannot hit on that do people have strong feelings about changing to Making a Difference for

Several options. As you know I have never liked "It's your time" 

Your fights are her fights 

Getting it Done 
Gets the job done 
Has what it takes 
She's got what it takes 

My two favorites and I think we can use both: 

Your fights are her fights 
She's got what it takes 

These both go to her strengths and are completely on our message.

put the focus on voters, but realize neither really captures our message. 

If we are going to change the signs we need to finalize the new language by 
cob today to start production. I thought we would start this conversation 
and brainstorming via email, but if we want to get on the phone at some 
point today too that works. 

First, do you think we should change? Second, ideas on what the new sign 
should say? Once we have your input we'll loop in Robby, John and 
Huma to make a final decision. Thanks.

John -- A candid memo, if I may. As Cassandra knows, I feel a bit of tension with Jeanne in the shaping of "the" 
decision memo and workplan. I haven't read the latest so-called "final" draft, but will try to do so tonight. The 
fact that she sent it directly to you and Chris Lu gives me pause. (My education and immigration team leaders 
would not do that.) Much of this, of course, is traceable to how the membership of the health team came about. 
(Water under the bridge.) Part of it is also that I've tried to be exceptionally light-handed given your 
relationships and Daschle's stature. Perhaps you instructed Jeanne to proceed this way, although that would be 
uncharacteristic of you. I assume not. 

But, until you instruct otherwise, I'm going to pretend that I'm still responsible for ensuring quality control, 
including fidelity to Barack's agenda/interests. 

This is getting more difficult, because it doesn't at all seem that the needed Hill consultations have taken place. 
More after I go through the memo carefully. Ciao.

Friend, 

Tomorrow is your first chance to cast a ballot for Governor Quinn. 
Yep, early voting starts Monday. 

There are Early Vote locations throughout your area, and you can 
vote at any one of them, any day of the week -- many of them are 
even open on weekends. 

So, really, why wait? 

Add your name to say you'll vote early: 

Yes, I'll vote early. 

No, but I'll vote on Election Day. 

Voting early is a win-win. 

Not only is it easier and faster than voting on Election Day, it’s a big 
part of our strategy to stop Bruce Rauner. 

By asking supporters to vote early, volunteers can focus on the 
voters who need to hear from us most. 

That could give us a huge advantage going into Election Day, but it 
only works if everyone pitches in. 

Let's show the Governor we have his back -- commit to 
vote early:

P.S. We’re running one of the biggest get out the Early Vote 
programs this state has ever seen, because that’s what it’s going to 
take to win. Will chip in $5 or more to help get as many 
supporters as possible to vote early?

IN WASHINGTON D.C. AT THE U.S. CONFERENCE OF MAYORS 
I went to our nation’s capital to address the U.S. Conference of 
Mayors . There I met with White House officials and other Mayors 
working tirelessly to create stronger, smarter cities and shared what 
we're doing to tackle major challenges right here at home.

Check out our latest blog post, Taking a Seat at the Table: Your Involvement in the Future of Our Legacy 

Cities , by Charlene Dwin Vaughn of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. In today's post, Charlene 
discusses the role of the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Historic Preservation Act's role in 
the planning process and emphasizes that both residents and officials should be better educated about these 
tools in order to the failures of "urban renewal" in the 1 960s. 

Also, check out our new Climate Justice in Action Series , which focuses on reframing the conversation on 
climate change to include environmental justice issues. Read our kickoff post featuring a video from 
Administrator McCarthy, and contribute success stories from your local area on our interactive climate justice 
map. In the most recent post in the series, Sherrell Dorsey discusses the positive, transformative impact that 
community planning and an HUD grant have had on a low-income community in Bridgeport, Connecticut that

Wall Street Journal: Crowds Swell at Romney Rallies After Ryan Pick 


John -- 

I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday's Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an 
overflow crowd of 15,000 people. 

There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized. 

And that's not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney's campaign has brought in over 70,000 
donations from his Tea Party base. 

We've got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters -- starting right now. 

Donate S3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama's agenda >> 

Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: "I love him. ..He's going to excite the 
Tea Party and get them on board..." 

We can't let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

Subject: [big campaign] McCain Donors Agree, McCain Would be Worse Than Bush 


"He's like a worse copy than Bush," Mr. Makhlouf said of Mr. McCain. 

(said Abdullah Makhlouf, the owner of a discount stereo store who is one of Mr. Abdullah's closest friends, and 
his wife contributed $9,200.) 

August 7, 2008 

NYT: Family's Donations to McCain Raise Questions 

Bv MICHAEL LUO 

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The Jordanian business partner of a prominent Florida businessman, who has raised more 
than $500,000 for Senator John McCain , appears to be at the center of a cluster of questionable donations to 
his presidential campaign. 

Campaign finance records show Mr. McCain collected a little more than $50,000 in March from members of a 
single extended family, the Abdullahs, in California and several of their friends. 

Amid a sea of contributions to the McCain campaign, the Abdullahs stand out. The checks come not from the 
usual exclusive coastal addresses, but from relatively hardscrabble inland towns like Downey and Colton. The 
donations are also startling because of their size: several donors initially wrote checks of $9,200, exceeding the 
$2,300 limit for an individual gift. 

Making matters murkier, some couples in the family who contributed more than $9,000 to Mr. McCain also gave 
the maximum in December to either Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton or Rudolph W. Giuliani , or both, 
totaling in the case of at least one family more than $18,000. 

On Wednesday, an article in The Washington Post said the donations were collected by Harry Sargeant III, a 
Florida businessman who has also raised money for Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Giuliani. 

It appears, however, that Mr. Sargeant, the finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party and the part- 
owner of a major oil trading firm, International Oil Trading Company, did not actually solicit the donations from 
the Abdullahs and their friends. 

That task fell to a longtime business partner, Mustafa Abu Naba'a. Mr. Sargeant said in an interview that he has 
known Mr. Abu Naba'a for more than a decade and has worked with him on commercial ventures, including a 
contract with the Pentagon to supply fuel to the military in Iraq. 

Through Mr. Abu Naba'a's connections, Mr. Sargeant has raised more than $100,000 in contributions from 
several dozen Arab Americans in California, including the Abdullahs, for four candidates: Mrs. Clinton, Mr. 
Giuliani, Mr. McCain and Charlie Crist in his successful campaign for Florida governor in 2006. Mr. Crist is a 
close friend and college fraternity brother of Mr. Sargeant. 

Several of the donors were emphatic in interviews that they had made the contributions on their own and had 
not been reimbursed. Indeed, while the donors do not fit the typical profile of people who often make large 
political donations, it appears many have made relatively successful livings, toiling away at small businesses they 
own: an auto repair shop, a discount stereo warehouse, a realty company. 

Brian Rogers, a spokesman for Mr. McCain, said the campaign strictly followed campaign finance laws and as a 
general rule would look into a matter if flags were raised, but he declined to say whether it would look into the 
contributions tied to Mr. Sargeant. 

Mr. Sargeant is a former Marine fighter pilot who has business interests around the world. He hosted a fund- 
raiser for Mr. McCain at his lavish home in Delray Beach, Fla., this year. Mr. Sargeant estimated he had raised

more than $200,000 for Mr. Giuliani and helped a business associate raise a similar amount for Mrs. Clinton. 

But Mr. Sargeant's business dealings have caused controversy. Representative Henry Waxman, Democrat of 
California, opened an investigation last month into whether his company has been overcharging the military for 
its contract in Iraq, although Mr. Sargeant said Mr. Waxman's office had an erroneous understanding of what 
the company was billing. 

As for his political fund-raising, Mr. Sargeant said he often turned to his business associates and asked them to 
solicit their extended families, although Mr. Sargeant said he was unclear exactly how Mr. Abu Naba'a knew the 
Abdullahs in California. 

Mr. Sargeant said Mr. Abu Naba'a, who has a home in Florida, was unavailable for an interview because he was 
abroad. 

Faisal Abdullah, a Palestinian immigrant who works as a director of operations of a window treatment 
company, identified himself in an interview as the driver behind the McCain donations from his relatives and 
friends. He sent them to Mr. Abu Naba'a, whom Mr. Abdullah described as an acquaintance. 

Mr. Abdullah is an unlikely McCain fund-raiser, admitting he had soured on the Republican Party as a result of 
President Bush. 

Nevertheless, he said that he harbored vague designs on a political career and that a discussion with Mr. Abu 
Naba'a gave him the idea that fund-raising was a way to get started. He said he initially collected numerous 
$500 checks for Mr. Crist from relatives and friends, and late last year, set out to raise money for the 
presidential campaign. 

Mr. Abdullah said he cajoled a few relatives into giving the maximum donations to Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Giuliani, 
the early front-runners last year. 

But when Mr. McCain claimed the mantle of presumed Republican nominee in March, Mr. Abdullah decided to 
support him. 

"This is the horse I'm betting on for the future," Mr. Abdullah said. 

He told his friends and relatives that the contributions were tax-deductible, something he later seemed surprised 
to learn from a reporter was not true. Many in his circle appear to have little affection for Mr. McCain but said 
they gave mostly as a favor to Mr. Abdullah. 

Abdullah Makhlouf, the owner of a discount stereo store who is one of Mr. Abdullah's closest friends, and his 
wife contributed $9,200. 

"He's like a worse copy than Bush," Mr. Makhlouf said of Mr. McCain. 

When a reporter initially contacted Mr. Makhlouf, he denied giving to the McCain campaign. 

After eventually admitting to the donation, Mr. Makhlouf added, "I'm still not going to vote for him." 

Michael Luo was in Riverside and added later reporting from New York. Carolyn Wilder contributed research 
from New York.

Susan Kleinberg Participating in "TRA: Edge of Becoming," Palazzo Fortuny, Venice - Opening 
June 4 - Nov. 27 


Susan Kleinberg is participating in TRA: Edge of Becoming at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, opening June 4, through November 27, 201 1 . 

TRA: Edge of Becoming is an exhibition that explores the inter-connectedness between place, history, creativity and universal wisdom, curated 
by Daniella Ferretti, Rosa Martinez, Francesco Poli and Axel Vervoordt. 

TRA means a passage through an open doorway. A gateway to what lies beyond. The threshold of thought. The expansion of perception. The 
energy within the void. The power of beginnings. TRA forges new passages of perspective and possibility through the transformative experience 
of art with the will of enhancing revelation and knowledge.

oops emailed too fast 
Hi all, 

I'd like to offer an additional policy idea on health care. My recommendation would be to not have HRC 
focus her health care views on the ACA itself, but to offer new ideas assuming the ACA is here to stay; talk 
past it so to speak so she doesn't get sucked into a debate on its merits. 

I'm attaching a CAP paper just put out on our proposal to redress rising out of pocket costs for all 
employees (not in the ACA). 

As part of our middle class squeeze work we found that health care costs for individuals have risen despite 
national health care expenditures leveling off; so costs have shifted from employers to employees. The 
paper documents the cost shift and how employers and providers have benefitted from national health 
expenditures and specifies a few policies, including increased transparency. 

Offering up for the mix of ideas.

get at who HRC is fighting for and who she is standing up against. 

We would like to use the call Friday to get your feedback on our general policy frame and your thoughts on the

On logistics, begging your patience and indulgence, could everyone do 4 pm on Friday instead? Some participants

NEW YORK (AP) — A nexus of Democratic groups is preparing for Hillary Rodham Clinton's widely anticipated presidential campaign. 


Ready for Hillary, a Democratic super PAC unaffiliated with the former secretary of state, is convening a daylong meeting of Clinton insiders on 
Friday for strategy sessions aimed at helping elect Clinton if she runs. The closed-door planning session about two weeks after Democrats' dismal 
midterm election performance comes as Clinton, the party's leading presidential contender, considers whether she will seek the presidency again 
in 2016. 


Ready for Hillary will join leaders of Democratic groups Priorities USA Action, American Bridge 21 st Century and Correct the Record to review the 
201 4 elections and prepare for next year. In some cases, the groups will be wrapping up their efforts while others are beginning to ramp up. 


"Everyone has a lane," said former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, the co-chair of Priorities USA Action and an adviser to Ready for Hillary. "We 
are going to work together and seamlessly so there's no infighting." 


Ready for Hillary, which was founded in 201 3, has signed up more than 1 .5 million people promising to help Clinton if she runs and has raised more 
than $10 million to harness a grassroots community of volunteers for Clinton. The group expects to fold if Clinton launches her presidential 
campaign and then transfer its data and list of supporters to the former first lady's campaign. 


Priorities USA Action, a Democratic super FAC that raised $70 million in 201 2 to air tough ads targeting Republican Mitt Romney, has maintained a 
low profile this year but is reconnecting with donors to prepare for next year. Correct the Record, a rapid-response media organization that has 
defended Clinton in her post-State Department period, expects to continue as a part of research arm American Bridge. 


The gathering is not authorized by Clinton, who will be speaking at an event in New York on Friday promoting the use of cook stoves in developing 
nations. But it will feature plenty of Democrats who have worked with her and her husband, former President Bill Clinton: ex-White House adviser 
Harold Ickes; Clinton campaign strategists James Carville and Paul Begala; Jonathan Mantz, who served as Hillary Clinton's national finance 
director; and Karen Finney, a former Hillary Clinton campaign aide. 


Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor who backed Clinton's presidential campaign, will speak at the meeting as a private 
citizen, aides said. 


Donors will also hear from Democratic strategists who could play senior roles in a future Clinton campaign, including Guy Cecil, the executive 
director of the Senate Democrats' campaign arm and a former Hillary Clinton campaign aide; Stephanie Schriock, the president of EMILY'S List; Ace 
Smith, a California-based Democratic strategist who directed Hillary Clinton's 2008 primary campaigns in three states; and Mitch Stewart, a former 
Obama campaign aide who has advised Ready for Hillary. 


Bloomberg: “Hillary Clinton's Campaian-ln-Waitina Grows Restless”

[Subtitle:] The latest round of fundraisers highlights the breadth of Clinton's support, and and a possible problem. 


Hillary Clinton is close to being ready. Now, she just has to find a way to tame the legions of loyalists who have been ready since their last 
presidential ride ended. 


10/18/2016

The complicated political machine known as Clintonland is revving its engine, as outside groups, top donors, and prospective aides begin preparing 
for an anticipated formal announcement of her presidential candidacy early next year. In the coming week alone there will be a half-dozen 
fundraisers aimed at greasing the path toward her 2016 debut. Some events are aimed at scooping up checks for existing pro-Clinton groups, 
while others will pocket financial "commitments" for a future campaign account. 


The main event is Friday's all-day donor gathering in New York City, featuring Clinton confidants from Arkansas to the State Department. Next up, 
would-be campaign financiers are holding 30-person dinners in Newark and New York City. They're like traditional fundraisers-all they lack is a 
candidate. 


While people close to Clinton caution that no final decisions have been made, they say the former secretary of state has shifted her focus from 
public events and paid speeches to private conversations about the guts of a campaign-messaging, staff, money. Her goal, they say, is to launch 
with a fully formed political operation. 


That would be difficult for any candidate, but that's particularly so for one with the last name Clinton. Unlike President Barack Obama, who's known 
for his tight circle of friends and advisers, the Clinton universe is a sprawling international club of foreign dignitaries, Hollywood stars and moguls, 
former administration officials and Wall Street executives. The vastness worries some supporters, who fret that the hordes of people who 
consider themselves close to the Clintons could complicate strategy. They want to avoid a campaign besieged by unsolicited advice, competing 
interests, and fierce rivalries. It's not so much a nightmare as a flashback to the 2008 primary. 


Within months of Clinton leaving the State Department in 2013, four outside groups declared themselves devoted to her potential candidacy and 
formed a sort of campaign-in-waiting, each with its own fiefdom. Priorities USA Action, the big-money super-FAC, plans to handle paid media. 
Emily's List, a group that backs the campaigns of Democratic women who support abortion rights, started Madam President as an early effort to 
assess voter views on the idea of a female president. Correct the Record, founded by Clinton backer David Brock, has established itself as the 
research arm, publicly defending her from Republican attacks. And Ready for Hillary, which has a list of 3 million supporters to sell her campaign if 
she gets in the race, is the base camp for activists. 


"I felt like the rationale of grassroots support and building lists is a really important lesson she learned from the last go-round," said Jennifer 
Selendy, a litigation partner at Kirkland & Blis in New York, who donated $25,000 to Ready for Hillary. "If she gets into the race, I'm sure I will 
contribute." 


While the groups have tried to define separate missions, there's some overlap, including among major donors whose checks come with a fair 
number of opinions. 


Already, Clinton's circle is engaged in an internal debate over when she should formally announce her candidacy. Some argue that sooner is 
better, allowing her to maximize the time her campaign and supportive super-PACs have to raise money for what's expected to be at least a $1 
billion enterprise. Others-friends, mostly-say Clinton should take her time because the moment she announces she'll be pounded with Republican 
attacks. Why wear the "Hit Me" sign any sooner than necessary? 


In the meantime, Clinton emissaries are quietly reaching out to possible staffers. And while political strategists in Washington have not quite started 
looking for housing in White Plains, N.Y.-a city not far from the Clinton home in Chappaqua, and therefore a potential headquarters location-they've 
begun speculating on the merits of living in New York City versus the suburbs. 


Several Clintonites are being eyed for senior positions. Robby Mook, who managed the campaign of longtime Clinton fundraiser and Virginia 
Governor Terry McAuliffe, is being considered as campaign manager. That possibility was underscored by a preliminary strike against him from an 
opposing camp: the leak of his private messages from a 1 50-member "Mook Mafia" email list he ran with another Democratic operative. 


Guy Cecil, executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is another name mentioned by people close to Clinton for campaign 
manager or another top position. White House counselor John Podesta, a former chief of staff during President Bill Clinton's administration, is on 
any short list. "If she runs, as I hope she will, I will do whatever she asks me to do," he told Bloomberg's Al Hunt in an interview on Charlie Rose. "I 
talk to her from time to time." 


With the midterm elections over, Clinton's path to harness the Democratic Party is clear-so far, no serious 2016 primary challengers are on the 
horizon. Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, who lacks the campaign skills and machine of the Clintons, opened an exploratory committee this week. 
A number of Obama's top aides have joined the organizations that will become part of her campaign apparatus, and at least a few top officials 
who refused to back her eight years ago have already endorsed her candidacy. “I’m frequently introduced as the highest-ranking woman in U.S.

office; I’d like to give up that title. And soon,” House Minority Leader Nancy Ftelosi, who resisted endorsing Clinton in 2008, told a cheering crowd in 
San Francisco last month. 


The various components of the campaign-in-waiting now must decide their next steps, including whether to continue to exist. 


Priorities USA Action officials are beginning to court big check-writers in one-on-one visits. The super-PAC says it won't formally accept donations 
until Clinton announces. "We played a critical role in helping elect a Democratic president in 2012 and we look forward to doing the same in 2016," 
said Peter Kauffmann, a spokesman for the organization. 


Ready for Hillary was designed to be different. Instead of hoarding piles of cash to unleash in a barrage of television ads, this group has existed 
solely to cultivate a vast base of small donors for Clinton. It has spent nearly all of the $1 0 million it raised since two Clinton lifers set it up in 
January 2013. Once Clinton announces, Ready for Hillary plans to lease its list of supporters to the campaign and is likely to dissolve. No matter its 
future, Ready for Hillary served another purpose-locking down operatives and showing off Clinton's dominance to potential rivals. The group also 
became a clearinghouse for surrogates such as Senators Mark Warner of Virginia, Chuck Schumer of New York, and Claire McCaskill of Missouri. 


"For people wondering when we're done, we're done if and when she runs," said Tracy Sefl, an adviser to the group. "Right now, we're going to 
keep doing the work and we're thrilled with what we're accomplishing." 


Business Insider: “Hillary Clinton Praised Obama's Big Immigration Speech” 


By Colin Campbell 

November 20, 2014, 9:09 p.m. EST 


Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton strongly endorsed President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration reform minutes 
after his speech concluded Thursday night. 


"I support the president's decision to begin fixing our broken immigration system and focus finite resources on deporting felons rather than 
families," Clinton said in a statement. 


Clinton had previously avoided weighing in on the issue as it became apparent the Obama planned to take executive action. 


In her reaction to the president's remarks, Clinton agreed with Obama's claim House Republicans forced him to unilaterally address immigration 
reform. The Senate, which is currently controlled by Democrats, previously passed an immigration bill that stalled in the lower legislative chamber. 


"I was hopeful that the bipartisan bill passed by the Senate in 2013 would spur the House of Representatives to act, but they refused even to 
advance an alternative. Their abdication of responsibility paved the way for this executive action, which follows established precedent from 
Presidents of both parties going back many decades. But, only Congress can finish the job by passing permanent bipartisan reform that keeps 
families together," Clinton continued. 


Clinton further urged the American public to take an even-keeled approach to the hot-button issue. 


"Our disagreements on this important issue may grow heated at times, but I am confident that people of good will and good faith can yet find 
common ground. We should never forget that we're not discussing abstract statistics we're talking about real families with real experiences. We're 
talking about parents lying awake at night afraid of a knock on the door that could tear their families apart, people who love this country, work hard, 
and want nothing more than a chance to contribute to the community and build better lives for themselves and their children," she said.

MSNBC: “Hillary Clinton: GOP ‘abdication’ forced Obama’s hand on immigration” 

By Alex Seitz-Wald 

November 20, 2014, 10:07 p.m. EST 

In a rare public statement, Hillary Clinton said she supports President Obama’s new executive action on immigration, lamenting that Republicans 
forced his hand. 


“I support the president’s decision to begin fixing our broken immigration system and focus finite resources on deporting felons rather than 
families,” the former secretary of state and likely presidential candidate said Thursday evening. “I was hopeful that the bipartisan bill passed by the 
Senate in 2013 would spur the House of Representatives to act, but they refused even to advance an alternative. Their abdication of responsibility 
paved the way for this executive action.” 


Republicans have called the action a dangerous usurpation of executive authority. But Clinton, like her husband, said she thinks Obama’s move 
follows “established precedent from Presidents of both parties going back many decades.” 


Obama’s policy is expected to temporarily spare up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. The president announced the plan in a 
speech Thursday night, saying many immigrants could finally “come out of the shadows and get right with the law.” 


Clinton, like Obama, said Congress must “finish the job by passing permanent bipartisan reform.” That should both keep families together and 
protect the border, she added. 


“We should never forget that we’re not discussing abstract statistics - we’re talking about real families with real experiences. We’re talking about 
parents lying awake at night afraid of a knock on the door that could tear their families apart,” Clinton said. 


Like most Democrats, Clinton has long supported immigration reform, and was in the White House when her husband took his own executive 
actions enforcing immigration laws. In the Senate, she voted in favor of overhaul supported by President Bush that ultimately failed. 


During her 2008 presidential campaign, however, Clinton ran into some trouble when she waffled on her position on giving drivers licenses to 
undocumented immigrants. This year, she’s been confronted and heckled by DREAMers, young undocumented immigrants, at several events. 


The fact that Clinton even put out a statement at ail is notable. Since stepping down as secretary of state, she has kept a low profile and avoided 
weighing in on issues of the day unless asked about them - and sometimes even then dodging. She has been criticized, for instance, for not taking 
a stance on the Keystone XL pipeline and waiting to speak out on the events in Ferguson. 


The quick, strong, and proactive response to Obama’s speech Thursday is usual, and could signal a new paradigm as she gets closer to a 
potential campaign.

The Hill: “House Oversight chairman to put spotlight on Clinton. Benghazi” 

By Cristina Marcos 

November 20, 2014,4:15p.m. EST 


The incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee plans to put the spotlight on Hillary Clinton. 


In an interview with The Hill on Thursday in his Capitol Hill office, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) set out a broad agenda that will include hearings on 
embassy security in light of the September 1 1 , 201 2 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead. 


“Secretary Clinton created a fiasco. And we're going to investigate it,” Chaffetz said of the former secretary of State. 

Benghazi is now under the jurisdiction of a House select committee, but Chaffetz indicated it is one of several issues spearheaded by outgoing 
Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that his panel will continue to monitor — even as Clinton is expected to prepare for a 201 6 White House 
bid. 


“Four years of her reign at State is something that we're still going to have to clean up and we have to address. We can't just ignore it,” Chaffetz 
said. 


Chaffetz said probes of the Secret Service, the Justice Department's “Fast and Furious” gun-tracing program and the Internal Revenue Service that 
began under Issa will be ongoing. 


“There are investigations, obviously, that will continue,” Chaffetz said. 


Chaffetz suggested his inaugural hearing as chairman could be on the comments from ObamaCare consultant Jonathan Gruber that the healthcare 
law passed because of voter “stupidity.” 


But he's also “leaving open the possibility” to a hearing early in his term on President Obama's unilateral action to change immigration laws. 


“It is on everybody's radar screen. I don't know if we would necessarily lead out on it, but we might,” Chaffetz said. “There are bigger, broader 
issues with immigration and securing the border that I'm sure we will dive into. No doubt about it.” 


Chaffetz said he thinks he can work effectively with Democrats and that he wants to avoid overtly personal confrontations that marred Issa’s 
reputation. 


“I don't want things to get personal,” Chaffetz said. “I want to be fair. I'm not going to let up on my tenacity or my passion on getting to the truth, but I 
ultimately want to be fair.” 


Chaffetz wants to hold hearings on the number of federal workers on paid administrative leave, something he thinks can be a bipartisan issue. 


He cited an example of an Environmental Protection Agency employee who was placed on paid leave — but not fired — after he was caught 
viewing porn on his computer for several hours a day. 


“I can guarantee you we're going to have a hearing about the fact that there are more than 4,000 people on paid administrative leave. Four 
thousand. We pay these people. It's like a paid vacation. That's not a partisan issue,” Chaffetz said. 


10/18/2016

Still other potential hearings on Chaffetz's list would be on the use of information technology across the federal government, public lands, renewal 
of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program and postal reform. 


While Democrats remain skeptical that Chaffetz will adhere to pledges to take a different approach than Issa, the new chairman thinks he can 
improve relations with the other sie of the aisle. 


For one, Chaffetz said he'll try to be more judicious with subpoenas. Issa came under criticism for issuing more than 1 00 subpoenas without the 
sign-off from the committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). At one hearing earlier this year, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen 
insisted the subpoena was unnecessary given that he had willingly appeared before the House Ways and Means Committee just days earlier. 


So far, Chaffetz hasn't heard from the Obama administration since winning the Oversight gavel apart from a congratulatory email from the White 
House Office of Legislative Affairs. 


But starting in January, they'll likely be at odds over the committee's investigations. 


For his part, Chaffetz said he hopes he won't even have to issue a single subpoena during his tenure as chairman. 


“I hope to never issue one. It's more dependent on the White House than it is on me,” Chaffetz said. “Subpoenas, in my mind, are a last resort.” 


But Chaffetz warned he would subpoena documents or witnesses if it appears there's no other way to access them. 


“If they are as open and transparent as they claim, I'll never have to issue one,” Chaffetz said. “But if they're going to play games and hide the 
documents, then we're going to start issuing subpoenas.” 


The New Republic: “Sherrod Brown Should Challenge Hillary Clinton for President” 

By Michael Kazin 
November 20, 2014 


At the risk of seeming ridiculous, I think Sherrod Brown should run for president. I know that, barring a debilitating health problem or a horrible 
scandal, Hillary Clinton is likely to capture the Democratic nomination. I realize too that Brown, the senior senator from Ohio, has never hinted that 
he may be tempted to challenge her. “I’m really happy where I am,” he told Chris Matthews last winter, when the MSNBC’s paragon of impatience 
urged him to run. 


Yet, for progressive Democrats, Brown would be a nearly perfect nominee. During his two decades in the House and Senate, he has taken strong 
and articulate stands on every issue which matters to the party’s broad, if currently dispirited, liberal base. When George W. Bush was in office 
and riding high, Brown opposed both his invasion of Iraq and the Patriot Act. He has long been a staunch supporter of abortion rights and gay 
marriage, and is married to Connie Schultz, a feminist author who writes a nationally syndicated column. 


Brown’s true mission, however, is economic: He wants to boost the well-being of working Americans by any means necessary. Brown has been 
talking and legislating about how to accomplish it for years before Bizabeth Warren left Harvard for the Capitol. During Obama’s first term, he 
advocated a larger stimulus package, called for re-enacting the Glass-Steagall Act to rein in big banks, and stumped for comprehensive immigration 
reform. He champions the rights of unions and the power of the National Labor Relations Board and criticizes unregulated “free trade” for 
destroying manufacturing jobs at home. He also led the charge among Senate Democrats that pressured Obama to drop his plan to appoint Larry 
Summers to head the Federal Reserve and appoint Janet Yellen instead. 

10/18/2016

On his lapel, Brown wears a canary pin to honor the workers’ movement that “gave us all food safety laws, civil rights, rights for the disabled, 
pensions and the minimum wage.” Like the canaries which miners once took with them into the pits to warn them of toxic gas, the pin symbolizes 
the need to stay on guard against any employers and politicians who threaten those gains. 


There are other Democrats — Warren is the best known — who also skillfully combine a politics of economic populism with a commitment to gender 
equality and civil liberties. But only Brown represents a populous swing state that has voted for the victor in every presidential election since 1 960 
In both his Senate races, Brown faced well-known and well-financed Republican opponents — and creamed them. In 2006, his unexpected 12- 
point margin over Mike DeWine was aided, in part, by the anti-Bush wave that gave Democrats control of Congress. Still, DeWine was a two-term 
incumbent who had been elected previously by landslides. In 2012, Brown faced Josh Mandel, the popular young state Treasurer. After what 
became that cycle’s most expensive Senate race, Brown won by six points. He outpolled Barack Obama in Ohio by over 160,000 votes. 


Brown’s success, like that of many politicians who are popular in swing states, relies, in part, on charm. He relishes going to hundreds of town 
meetings around the state, where he answers any question thrown at him. Whether in public or talking to an interviewer in his office, he comes off 
as relaxed, witty, curious, and rhetoric-free. Two years ago, when I spoke with him in Washington, we spent so much time talking and laughing 
about his Ohio predecessors — who included the formidable Mark Hanna, the Republican who, in 1 896, pioneered the big-money, mass media 
national campaign — that we barely had enough time to talk about Brown’s career and policies. I have never enjoyed myself so much with any 
politician, particularly one who was, at the time, fighting to keep his seat. 


But Brown earns his popularity by refusing to trim his progressive faith or apologize for it. “If you remember who you are,” he told me, “you don’t 
have to move to the center, wherever the center happens to be at any moment.” He keeps insisting that America will not become a decent society 
unless the labor movement regains some of its strength and corporations lose a good deal of their power over campaigns and politicians. 


Last summer, George Will paid Brown a kind of tribute. “He looks, sounds and acts like a real, as opposed to faculty club, leftist,” wrote Will in a 
rare moment when he put his irony, if not his hauteur, aside. “Although he is a Yale graduate, he has the rumpled look and hoarse voice of 
someone who spent last night on Paris barricades, exhorting les miserables to chuck cobblestones at the forces defending property.” Will did have 
a point when he contrasted Sherrod Brown’s good-natured, steadfast populism with Hillary Clinton’s “risk-averse careerism” and “joyless plod” 
toward the Democratic nomination. 


If nothing else, Sherrod Brown could help push the plight of “the struggling middle class” — which is really composed of men and women who work 
for wages or a mediocre salary — to the forefront of the Democratic primary campaign, where it deserves to be. And no journalist could accuse him 
of altering his views to do so. According to exit polls from the midterm election, nearly two-thirds of Americans believe their government favors the 
wealthy. Senator Brown must be less “happy” now when he contemplates spending the next two years objecting again and again to the deeds of 
the new Republican majority. Why shouldn’t he speak liberal truths to power — in his party and the nation — instead? 


MSNBC: “Jim Webb. Martin O’Malley present first 2016 challenges for Clinton” 

By Alex Seitz-Wald and Jane C. Timm 
November 20, 2014, 1:22 p.m. EST 

Two potential challengers to Hillary Clinton, former Sen. Jim Webb and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, have clearly signaled their intent to enter the 
2016 campaign. 


Webb launched an exploratory committee late Wednesday to consider a 2016 run. The committee gives him the ability to fundraise, spend, and 
organize like a presidential campaign, without officially declaring just yet. 


The popular ex-senator from Virginia has moderate, anti-war credentials that might ring true with liberals and moderates voters sick of gridlock and 
overseas military operations. 


10/18/2016

Page 140 


“Over the past few months, thousands of concerned Americans across the political spectrum have asked me to run for president,” Webb said in a 
video posted to his website. “A constant theme runs through these requests. Americans want positive, visionary leadership that they can trust.” 


Meanwhile, outgoing Maryland Gov. O’Malley has hired a former adviser to Hillary Clinton to lead policy development at his political action committee. 
O’Malley has only two more months left in office in Annapolis, but his Washington-based O’Say Can You See PAC is adding staff. One major 
addition is Sarah Miller, who served on the policy team of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and was a close aide to longtime Clinton 
confidant John Podesta at the Center for American Progress, a leading liberal think tank. 


At the Center for American Progress, Miller served as a speechwriter and policy adviser to Podesta, who founded the think tank before moving to 
the White House as counselor to President Obama late last year. Podesta served as Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff and will likely hold a 
very senior role in another Clinton presidential campaign. After CAP, Miller joined the Treasury Department, but has remained close to Podesta. 


O’Malley, who says he is seriously considering a presidential bid, has a policy record in Maryland that could excite progressives. And lately, he’s 
been vocal in taking the liberal positions on issues of the day. He came out for net neutrality just before President Obama made his own 
announcement on the matter, and called on Congress to vote down the Keystone XL pipeline ahead of a much-watched vote this week. 


On the other hand, Webb has cast himself as an economic populist. He has touted his varied credentials — eight years of active duty military, 
including deployment in Vietnam, five years at the Pentagon mostly as Assistant Secretary of Defense and Assistant Secretary of the Navy, four 
years working behind the scenes in Congress, and six years in Congress. His anti-interventionist views will differentiate him from Clinton, who 
voted for the war in Iraq while in the Senate and encouraged the Obama administration’s intervention in Libya. 


But credentials aside, few Americans even know Webb’s name and few are talking about his candidacy for president: in a Washington Post/ABC 
News poll from June, he garnered support from only 2% of Democrats. 


At an event in September, Webb acknowledged his likely opponent, Hillary Clinton. 


“I’m not here to undermine her,” Webb said. “I’m here just to explain where my concerns are as someone whose been involved in military and 
foreign policy all of my life.” 


MSNBC column: Krystal Ball: “Is Jim Webb 201 6’s Barack Obama?” 


By Krystal Ball 

November 20, 2014, 3:58 p.m. EST 


Just when we thought the 2016 Democratic presidential primary would turn into a bloodless coronation of Hillary Clinton, the race gets a whole lot 
more interesting. Jim Webb, former Virginia Democratic senator and Secretary of the Navy under President Ronald Reagan, just announced he’s 
forming a presidential exploratory committee. Webb writes: 


“I’d like to take a few minutes of your time to ask you to consider the most important question facing America today: Is it possible that our next 
President could actually lay out a vision for the country, and create an environment where leaders from both parties and from all philosophies 
would feel compelled to work together for the good of the country, despite all of the money and political pressure that now demands they 
disagree?” 


The letter doesn’t mention Hillary Clinton, but Webb’s background, rhetoric, and persona stands in stark contrast to the presumed Democratic 
frontrunner. On issues of national security and economic justice, Webb could be the credible challenger to Secretary Clinton that some Democrats 

10/18/2016

have been looking for. 


While Clinton is hawkish and famously supported President George W. Bush’s Iraq War, Jim Webb has been a forceful and credible non- 
interventionist voice. While Clinton has attempted to shift her rhetoric to match the current mood of economic populism, Webb has a long track 
record of focusing on poverty, inequality, and economic justice. But perhaps more than anything, Webb’s very persona stands in direct opposition 
to that of Hillary Clinton. 


In 2006, at a time when Hillary Clinton was serving in the Senate and considering whether or not to renounce her support for the Iraq War, Jim 
Webb was stumping for a Senate seat in combat boots as an ode to his son who was serving in the military there. Before Webb’s opponent, 
George Allen, made “macaca” a household word, Webb was making a name for himself in Virginia politics based on his combination of decorated 
military service and opposition to the Iraq War. 


Webb’s consistent and principled opposition led to a memorably uncomfortable exchange with then-President George W. Bush shortly after Webb’s 
election. At a White House reception for incoming Senate freshmen, Bush tracked Webb down and asked him: “How’s your boy?” To which Webb 
replied: “I’d like to get them out of Iraq, Mr. President.” Bush tried again: “That’s not what I asked you. How’s your boy?” “That’s between me and my 
boy, Mr. President,” Webb said ending the conversation. 


Webb has since stuck to his guns as a non-interventionist, opposing U.S. involvement in Libya and Syria. If Americans are afraid of being drawn 
back into Iraq or being goaded by ISIS into another full-scale military conflict, Webb’s anti-war stance - combined with his deep knowledge and 
credibility as a military veteran - could be a potent challenge to Clinton’s hawkishness. 


Economic populism could provide another area of potential vulnerability for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state has attempted to match her 
rhetoric to the Democratic mood of the day by highlighting inequality and advocating for a minimum wage increase. But it hasn’t stopped criticism of 
her continued coziness with Wall Street, including the generous compensation she has received for speeches to Goldman Sachs. Clinton has yet 
to stake out a position at odds with the corporate and Wall Street executives who are expected to fund her campaign. 


Webb, on the other hand, has already taken positions that would set him against the economic elite. In a recent interview with Ryan Lizza of The 
New Yorker, Webb pointed out the absurdity of hedge fund managers paying lower tax rates than wage earners saying: “Fairness says if you’re 
a hedge-fund manager or making deals where you’re making hundreds of millions of dollars and you’re paying capital-gains tax on that, rather than 
ordinary income tax, something’s wrong, and people know something’s wrong.” Webb has also decried the fact that both Republicans and 
Democrats are beholden to Wall street financial interests. 


Webb’s candidacy could also undercut the supposed promise of Hillary’s electability. Some have argued that Clinton, given her Arkansas ties and 
previous success appealing to white working class voters, would be able to expand the electoral map and compete in Southern states that were 
out of bounds for President Obama. Webb, who is of Scotch-lrish decent and whose ancestors hail from Appalachia, would likely have the same 
electoral appeal. His exploratory letter highlights his concern for both the inner cities where you “see the stagnation, poverty, crime, and lack of 
opportunity that still affects so many African Americans” and the “poorest counties in America - who happen to be more than 90 percent White, 
and who live in the reality that ‘if you’re poor and White you’re out of sight.’” 


Most potently, Webb and Hillary Clinton could not be any more different stylistically. While Clinton seemingly can’t get enough of hobnobbing with 
economic elites and cultivating donors, Webb has clear antipathy for the entire political fundraising process. When he was in the Senate, his 
fundraising approach consisted primarily of an occasional letter, penned by Webb himself explaining his work and asking for donations. If you did 
see Webb at political fundraisers, you would likely find him off to the side, speaking only to those who approached him, rather than working the 
wealthiest and most powerful individuals as most other politicians would. 


Senator Tim Kaine, who replaced Webb in the Senate, explained to The Washington Post: “He is not a backslapper. There are different models that 
succeed in politics. There’s the hail-fellow-well-met model of backslapping. That’s not his style.” In all the ways that Hillary is careful, Webb is 
direct. In the ways that she’s polished, he’s rough. And in all the ways that Hillary eagerly embraces the political game, Webb distances himself 
from it. But his authenticity could also be a liability: Webb has no established donor network and no appetite for politics. 


Barack Obama showed how a potent combination of outsider status, anti-war credibility and deep grassroots enthusiasm could propel an 
insurgent candidate into a position to win the nomination against the formidable Clinton political war machine. Despite the lessons of 2008, the 
nascent Hillary Clinton campaign seems to have corrected little of its tone-deafness or overconfidence. At the same time, Clinton is unlikely to allow 
her organization to be out-executed the way she was by Obama, who capitalized on his campaign’s organizational competence and managerial 
discipline to win the Democratic nomination.

Though Clinton’s tone-deafness and hubris might still befuddle Hillaryland in 2016, you can be sure they would have their caucus states organized 
and not be asleep at the wheel. And a candidate as fundamentally cautious as Hillary Clinton is unlikely to have the aforementioned “macaca” 
moment that ignited Webb’s unlikely 2006 Senate candidacy against George Allen. 2006 was also a spectacular year for Democrats, when national 
forces came to Webb’s aid and made up for his many organizational sins and fundraising disadvantages. 


Webb has never proven he can run the type of campaign organization that could execute the complex, precinct-by-precinct war it would take to 
dislodge Hillary. Nor is he the type of charismatic figure that electrified the national stage the way Obama did during his 2004 Democratic 
convention debut. But as the 2016 field comes together, a combination of factors could conspire to unleash a type of grassroots firestorm for 
Webb: disdain for politics as usual, the unaddressed fury of blue collar white voters, a deep longing for authenticity, and a likely post-Obama 
backlash against transformational, rhetorically charismatic leaders. An Obama-to-Webb transition isn’t the most natural, but given their shared 
disdain for hawkish adventurism and anti-establishment credibility, Webb’s bid for the coalition of the ascendant is not unreasonable. 


However, before getting the politically cynical millennials to knock down doors for him, Webb will also have to explain to the Democratic base his 
positions on gun control, immigration and women’s rights. A 1 979 article he wrote titled “Women Can’t Fight” is tough to square with a Democratic 
party that champions women’s empowerment and equality. 


Still, for those looking for an alternative to Hillary Clinton and hoping she’ll face a real challenge in the Democratic primary, Jim Webb’s candidacy 
will certainly be an interesting one to watch. In his letter announcing his exploratory committee, Webb writes: “I can assure you that we will be 
focusing not on petty politics or how to match a position with a poll, but on the future of our country and on solutions that will rebuild and unite us.” 
Lots of politicians could write those words. Webb is one of the very few who could write them and actually be believed. 


The Daily Beast: “Hillary Gets a Challenger and He’s a Marine” 

By David Freedlander 
November 20, 2014 

[Subtitle:] Jim Webb is officially exploring a 2016 run. Why the former senator — and former Republican — might be able to reach the Democratic 
voters that Clinton can’t. 


The typical campaign kickoff video has soft lighting, shots of the candidate with family or, shaking hands with beaming youngsters, grizzled 
farmers, and grateful factory workers while a voice-over runs down platitudes about saving the nation from the imminent peril that another election 
gone wrong will bring. 


Jim Webb’s announcement that he’s forming an exploratory committee for a possible 2016 presidential run had all the slick production of the 
instructional video shown before jury duty. 


There was Webb, a one-term senator from Virginia, wearing a charcoal gray suit and a blue button shirt, staring directly into the single camera, 
speaking for 14 minutes. He laid out his biography — Vietnam vet, secretary of the Navy under Ronald Reagan, antiwar Democrat in the U.S. 
Senate — his record as a lawmaker, which included criminal-justice reform and a new Gl Bill, and the rationale for his campaign: “A strong majority 
of Americans agree that we are at a serious crossroads. In my view the solutions are not simply political, but those of leadership.” (The text, 
spread out over pages, was helpfully posted directly below the video.) 


It has all the trappings of a campaign as vanity project, the type of presidential exploration designed not to excite convention delegates but to boost 
a candidate’s name ID before cable-TV bookers. Webb, after ail, would come into a Democratic primary with considerable baggage — never mind 
that he would likely be squaring off against Hillary Clinton, the most overwhelming favorite in an open Democratic primary in history. There is the 
fact that Webb used to be a Republican, a point he proudly points to in the video when he mentions his service in the Reagan administration. Or the 
fact that Webb, who decided not to run again after only one term in elective office, doesn’t seem to have the stomach for the degradations of 
politics. And the fact that Webb’s base of support lies among working-class whites, who are a diminishing constituency in a party made up more 
and more of liberals, minorities, and the professional classes. (“What a naive and stupid thing to think that Democratic primary voters want,” wrote 
The Daily Kos in response to Webb’s kickoff video, calling Webb a hopeless crank and comic relief in the mold of Herman Cain.)

But veterans of his campaign for Senate and people close to him insist that Webb is taking a serious look. Webb’s video announcement last night 
makes him the first Democrat to officially declare his interest, and as the party waits for the near-inevitable Clinton kickoff, some Webb supporters 
say that is not as inevitable as many pundits believe. And should Clinton jump in, some in Webb world say they think she is the wrong candidate at 
a time when the nation is disgusted with politics as usual and when the declining prospects of the middle class is the most important issue facing 
the nation. 


“Jim is not a trial-balloon guy. A lot of people send trial balloons up because they want to see if they have a chance, or if people like them,” said 
Steve Jarding, a strategist on Webb’s 2006 run. “That’s not Jim. He says ‘I have a message and I am going to move that message.’ He challenges 
the Democratic Party to say what it stands for.” 


Jarding acknowledged that Webb faces long odds — “At this point, you wouldn’t bet on him” — but noted that his win in what was thought to be 
deeply Republican Virginia in 2006, against a popular incumbent, was unlikely as well. 


And he conceded that Webb didn’t have much of a taste for politics, but suggested that the former senator could be a stand-in for Americans who 
don’t have much of a taste for the process either right now. 


“Apparently 90 percent of Americans agree with him. They don’t like politics much these days either. Maybe Americans are willing to look at 
someone who does something different from the calculated. He gives those Americans a voice who say, ‘You know what, they are all crooks and 
bastards up there on Capitol Hill and I don’t want to have anything to do with them.’ I mean, look at that video! With all due respect, it was like 
something out of the 1 970s. It wasn’t what you would see from an insider politician.” 


On Friday, some of Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, who have banded together under the Ready for Hillary super PAC to raise millions of dollars 
and garner millions of email addresses, will gather in Midtown Manhattan to bask in their successes in preparing the groundwork for her run. Webb 
has kept a low profile since leaving the Senate, and will be running for president “the old-fashioned way,” in the words of one aide — waiting to 
announce before trying to gather support. 


And Clinton, his aides insist, is a non-factor. 


“It ain’t about Hillary,” said Mudcat Saunders, a longtime Virginia strategist who worked on Webb’s Senate campaign. “It’s about bring the American 
dream to the forefront once again for working people and small business. The working people and small business — they haven’t had any 
representation in years. And they know it. 


“Americans want to do something about this coin-operated government.” 


The early line on Webb had been that he would be challenging Clinton from the right. It is a reasonable assumption, considering his roots in the 
Republican Party, in the Marines, and his proud Scots-lrish roots. But Webb’s aides insist it isn’t true. He is to the left of Hillary on foreign 
intervention, and is more populist on economic matters as well, talking about not just curbing the power of big banks but about an inequality agenda 
that goes beyond raising taxes and the minimum wage in order to help lower middle-class families gain more of a foothold. They see him bringing 
working-class whites and Southerners into the fold in a way that no other Democrat could. 


“He talks about taking the Democratic Party back to its populist roots,” said Jessica Vandenberg, a longtime political operative who just moved back 
to her native Iowa and is helping lay the groundwork for the Webb campaign in that first-in-the-nation caucus state. “There is a debate about the 
direction of the Democratic Party, and it is good to have that debate.” 


National Journal: “MoveOn Warns Clinton: Back Keystone. Lose Your Base”

[Subtitle:] The controversial oil-sands pipeline is cropping up in the nascent 201 6 battle for the White House. 


The progressive group MoveOn.org is pressing Hillary Clinton to come out against the Keystone XL oil-sands pipeline, warning that she could lose 
Democratic voters if she doesn't take a stand against the project. 


"Hillary Clinton's refusal to take a position raises the possibility that she is worse on climate change than 80 percent of the incoming Senate's 
Democratic Caucus," said Anna Gailand, executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action. 


She warned: "If she's considering a run for president and wants the support of the party's base, Hillary Clinton should clarify that she opposes this 
dirty and dangerous pipeline." 


Clinton, the Democratic front-runner if she decides to enter the White House race, has repeatedly declined to offer an opinion on Keystone. 


"I can't really talk about it because I was in the office that has primary responsibility for making the decision. I don't want to inject myself into what 
is a continuing process or to in any way undermine my successor as he tries to make this decision," she said at an event in Canada last month, 
referring to John Kerry, who followed Clinton as secretary of State. 


But Bill Snape, senior counsel for the Center for Biological Diversity, said there's no formal restriction preventing Clinton from offering an opinion on 
the pipeline. "She's a private citizen now," said Snape, whose group opposes Keystone. "Nothing in Clinton's secretary of State job would prevent 
her from taking a policy position at this point." 


The State Department is heading the federal review of the project, but the final decision is expected to come from 


Polling shows that Democrats are divided over Keystone. A Pew Research Center poll released Nov. 12 showed 
surveyed currently favor construction, compared with 54 percent in March of 2013. Overall, Pew's survey found 
supports the project. 


In contrast to Clinton, outgoing Maryland governor and potential 2016 Democratic White House candidate Martin O'Malley is bashing the pipeline. "It's 
time to reject the either/or and smallball choices facing us on energy. I hope the Senate rejects #KeystoneXL~it's too much carbon dioxide, and not 
nearly enough jobs (only about 50 jobs permanent once construction is finished)," he said on Facebook ahead of a Senate vote on the project 
earlier this week. 


the West Wing. 


that 43 percent of Democrats 
that 59 percent of the public 


Among the other potential 2016 challengers to Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont strongly opposes Keystone. But former Virginia Democratic 
Sen. Jim Webb, who has just announced an exploratory committee for a White House run, voted in favor of the pipeline in 2012. 


The MoveOn.org statement comes two days after legislation to approve TransCanada's pipeline, which would bring crude oil from Canadian oil- 
sands projects to Gulf Coast refineries, failed by a single vote in the Senate. Thirty-nine Democrats and two independents aligned with their 
caucus (Sanders and Sen. Angus King) voted against the bill Tuesday, while 14 Democrats supported it. 


Bill McKibben, a prominent climate-change activist and leading Keystone foe, supported MoveOn.org's push to get Clinton to take a stand.

editing the project design over the holiday so we can present a proposal to HRC at the beginning of 
Jan. Fingers crossed. 

2. Good discussion about digital and tech. I think we have some good digital options. ..she approved 
setting up an interview process for CTO candidates, since we want someone outside politics for this 
role and we need outside advice on candidates. 

3. Self research: Cheryl, she wanted to keep Heather and the team going from DC. I flagged that we 
will likely need to expand the team to 5-10 people, which she seemed fine with. I also flagged that 
self research is so integral to rapid response, vetting, content, etc that we'd probably want a 
contingent in HQ to prevent bottlenecks. We agreed I'd loop back with you to discuss options--! think 
a hybrid model may work. Let's discuss. 

4. We had a good discussion about communications. John there are some WH people I'd like to 
discuss. I'll follow up. Any names welcome!

Updated Travel Memo 

5 5 v 2 MIDWEST SOUTH TRAVEL MEMO.docx 


Hi John- 

Per our earlier conversation I've updated the travel memo to reflect changes to the roadshow itinerary, including meetings and lodging. Below 
you'll find the plain text of just tomorrow's travel. Full memo attached. 

Earlier tonight I got on the phone with Marcus, Midwest Deputy National Finance Director, who is in charge of organizing the Chicago roadshow 
and your meeting with Fred Eychaner. I made sure that we're coordinated on all logistics fortomorrow, including your pickup from Wendy's house 
and your drop-off at ORD after the event. After that call I also made slight adjustments to your briefing for the Eychaner meeting, which I believe 
you saw. 

Tomorrow morning volunteer John West is scheduled to pick you up from Wendy's place at 9:50am to give you time to settle in the car before 
your 10am call with Ken. I saw your brief traffic with Wendy about the possibility of her attending the event and driving you. If she 
confirms, please let me and we can tell John not to come. Otherwise, he will be there to pick you up. The rest of the day's logistics are 
below. 

I will hop on the phone with Greg and Jon on the ground in Miami/Ft Lauderdale tomorrow to review logistics there as well. After I speak with them I 
will make any necessary changes to this memo and get you a new copy. 

Marcus will have this printed for you when you arrive at the finance roadshow venue tomorrow (Clayco, construction company, offices in 
downtown Chicago). 

Best, 

Milia

How are you? 

Our corporate parent (FTI Consulting) throws a huge bankruptcy conference in Beaver Creek, CO every March. They asked me 
whether you do paid speeches. If so, I guess the questions are: (a) how much do you charge (they would pay full market rates); 
and (b) who should I put them in contact with?

Subject: Re: CHAI fund and advisory board 


It's a bit vague in the documents Ira provided. I can't tell if he would make equity/debt investments or just grants, 
but I got the sense during the Board meeting that he would like the flexibility to make both.

Subject: Re: CHAI fund and advisory board 

I'm a little confused--an investment fund or an innovation fund? 

Probably both are bad, but they seem different in the pitch and

As usual and as expected, a great job from the ALG research team, putting together an amazingly comprehensive and detailed 
questionnaire that will provide a payday of rich data. 

My comments are offered not necessarily as suggestions for edits, but more as an offering of what I have been hearing on the 
multi-year swing and non-swing state tour of independent voters. Some of this is commentary or observation that may or may 
not be relevant to changing any questions, but offer as food for thought. Please understand that in many cases I call attention 
to things without necessarily suggesting an action or improvement, but just raise the issue in the hope that it may generate 
thought among the rest of the team. And some of these comments may be off-base, which is frequently the case, but here goes: 

1. One of the biggest wording issues we've struggled with is the word "invest," which I know is a word that we use (not sure 
if Reps use it) to mean additional spending. And Dems can't say additional spending because that triggers negative 
reaction and we get hit with tax-and-spend Dems/liberals. But invest is not a word that I hear voters use in the groups we 
do. And for a few, invest triggers thoughts about the stock market, or other such speculation. In some cases they say, 
"spend more," but what they really want is adequate funding. Investment is the construct of question 14 and used in 13, 
16, 29 and elsewhere. We also use the more traditional definition of investment in 30f. I see "increasing funding" in 
q24, which I think is what we really mean when saying "investments." There may not be a better word to use as 
substitute, but I bring this up, only because the word is viewed, at least in the qual we've done, as a political word that 
Democrats use to mean "spend more". 

2. On q6, I see climate change, and I see the need for that. Comment is that I frequently hear voters talk about the 
environment as a key issue without mentioning climate change specifically. Some are just shy on the term, seeing it as 
controversial, while still harboring concerns about whether there is something going on out there. Others care more 
about clean air and clean water and stopping pollution. Others care about energy and clean energy. I understand value 
and necessity of asking specifically about climate change, but wanted to note the importance of environment to some who 
may not believe/care in climate change. 

3. Also on q6, immigration is the other issue that we regularly hear volunteered as most important facing the country. The 
other thing, of course, is government itself, the gridlock/partisanship, etc., which I know we all know about, and I know we 
can't add to the list. But frequently that trumps all other issues when voters are asked what is the most important issue 
facing the country. 

4. Should we do a check on Scott Walker fav/unfav in 8? 

5. Q13, we've also found some don't know 'infrastructure' when asked without clarification. We are hearing more concern 
about streets, roads, highways, bridges, etc., but not everyone uses the word infrastructure. Like that job training is there, 
which is huge. (I see that infrastructure is defined in 14a. I've rarely heard infrastructure defined as 14b though). 

6. On 14h, mostly I hear voters talk about loans, and rarely talk about grants. Are we thinking about a policy that would 
lead to an increase in grants? Reducing cost of student loans is something I hear constantly as a concern. 

7. Another thing I hear in groups often that is not in ql4 is public safety, which takes in a few things: more cops on the 
streets and in the neighborhoods, better firefighting services, reduced response time in the case of emergencies, and 
disaster planning. 

8. On the 15 series, clearly there is a policy behind d that the team is working on, but to me, $51,000 seems an odd almost 

10/18/2016

arbitrary amount, and long hours seems vague. Maybe just "makes 50 thousand or less"? 

9. I'm confused on 15p, do they keep unemployment benefits as long as they can show they are starting their own business, 
and then unemployment ends once the business launches? I'm not sure I get this one. 

10. On 16/17 series, the other thing I hear people discuss regularly in conjunction with job training is apprenticeship 
programs. 

11. I had a recent instance in which I found massive confusion among voters between debt and deficit. Some use 
interchangeably, some think debt is accumulated while deficit is annual. So just to check, we ask about deficit in 6/7, and 
debt in 16/17. 

12. On 21, not to add any more, but another item I hear regularly in groups is along the lines of, improving our schools so 
students receive the skills necessary for jobs of the future... 

13. Elephant in the education room is standardized testing. I see it 24/25 but not in 23 series? 

14. Reducing class size is another thing that constantly comes up when talking about what can improve education. 
Maintaining arts/music/phys ed/recess, etc. also comes up regularly. 

15. Also on education generally, perhaps not for this questionnaire, is the giving teachers more latitude to teach critical 
thinking. I frequently hear voters saying teachers teach kids how to take tests but not how to think. Many also talk 
about the need for teachers to teach "the basics". 

16. Also I've heard a lot of pushback on "free college tuition," as making it free for everyone gnaws at some as going too far, 
unless there are some basic restrictions and accountability to make sure that students are trying, getting decent grades, 
and moving toward matriculation (I was surprised to hear some mention their awareness of- and annoyance at — 
perpetual students who are perceived to be living off the government while extending their college years into decades, 
something that I myself was considering, oh, so long ago.) 

17. The first choice on 28 strikes me as two separate ideas - paying workers more, and long-term growth 

18. On 30a/b, I remember some thinking that 500k was a good place to draw the line. Perhaps rather than 250k, which more 
people are saying is too low, at least in groups... 

19. In discussions on tax reform in groups, the word that is spoken with most emotion is "simplify." 

20. On 32, instead of greenhouse gases, voters say "pollution" although I understand that they are not the same. But many 
don't understand "greenhouse gases". 

21. On 30k/l, we use high earners, rather than upper income or wealthy, or just high incomes. High earners is a term I don't 
hear much in groups when discussing this sort of stuff. 

I fear I've already gone on too long. 

I may not be able to get on the Monday AM call, but if anyone has any questions or comments on my questions or comments, 
please email. 

And finally, kudos again to everyone for putting together such a rich questionnaire that will provide clear guidance moving 
forward.

Subject: First Draft of Policy Poll 
Team HRC 

Attached you will find the first draft of the Policy Poll. There is a lot going on in this poll and a lot that we all want to know but 
naturally there are time limitations on what we can do in one instrument. We will have future policy polls that will build on this 
one and dive deeper into specific issue areas. 

We are attempting to do several things in this poll: 

1: Measure the importance voters put on different issues 
2: Measure isolated support or opposition of policy proposals 

3: Determine the prescriptions that voters have when policy proposals are stacked against each other 
4: And on some issues, see if proposal stand up to opposition arguments. 

We have also focused on the following issue areas — almost all economic related: 

1: General Issue salience (most important issue that leaders should focus on) 

2: Importance of new investments in a variety of areas that could help families and the economy 
3: The importance of different policy proposals to improve the economy and incomes 
4: Dissecting the needs of small businesses and what is needed to help them succeed and grow 
5: Proposals that would improve public education (K-12) and college debt 
6: Tax reform and tax policy options (OK, tax increases) 

7: Climate changed focused mostly on the Pollution Tax (carbon tax), including opposition arguments 
8 Paid Family Leave including opposition arguments

9: Baseline measure on trade 
10: Proposals for retirement security 

That is a lot for one poll and it is certainly too long but we wanted people to be able to get the full flavor or issues we have 
discussed on past policy calls and strategy meetings. This will allow us to put issues side by side and then make decisions on 
priorities and what we might be able to wait for future polls. 

As you review think to yourself what might not be needed in this round of research. If you feel strongly that there are items 
missing that should be included please be ready to let us know what you would cut to fit it in the poll. 

I also want to give a shout out to the Policy Team. Them memos, calls and endless emails we sent to Jake, Dan and Ethan have 
been invaluable and we could not have put this draft together without your effort. Thank you. 

We have a call on Monday which gives everyone the weekend to kick the tires (Happy Valentines). Feel free as you review and 
ponder to shoot me, Jeff Liszt, and Matt Hogan, an email on your comments and suggestions (and questions) and then we can 
attempt to put a second draft together before the call. That would make the call more efficient. 

Thanks for everyone's time and effort.

Subject: MO COS 


I had a few thoughts mostly to my own detriment. 3 from CAP. 

Jennifer Palmieri--CAP communications director, spectacular, deputy 
White House press secretary at the end of Clinton, Edwards press 
spokesperson in 04, very close to Elizabeth Edwards, held her hand 
thru illness and infidelity, not speaking to John these days, very 
good manager, great communications skills, good human being. Probably 
should be considered for Press Sec or Deputy press sec or 
Communications Director in the main show. 

Marlene Cooper Vlasic-senior comms person here, manages all our 
events, came from Kennedy Center, Liberian-American, she's Helene 
Cooper's sister. Helene is NYT reporter with the autobigraphy House at 
Sugar Beach on growing up in Liberia. Marlene is an excellent manager, 
very easy to get along with. Should also be considered for socail 
secretary as well. 

Daniella Leger, CAP deputy communications director, African American, 
press secretary type. Worked for Kerry in 04. Super good, could 
probably step up to the COS job. also an excellent candidate for 
press secretary if that's not done. 

Elizabeth Sears-Smith, Rahm's COS, very good, very capable political 
manager, but I don't know her as well, might check with Rahm. 

Tamera Luzzatto, this may be weird, but she's Hillary's COS in the 
Senate. Not really part of the Hillary political operation. Patti 
always treated her badly. She was Jay Rockefeller's COS before 
Hillary. Beloved on the Hill. Strong manager with very good sense of 
Washington. She has had health problems, benign brain tumor, but is 
doing great now. 

Let me know if any of these grab you and we can discuss.

Subject: 215: Q&A on Ending the Section 215 Bulk Telephony Metadata Program 


Q&A on Ending the Section 215 Bulk Telephony Metadata Program 


What other options did you consider before settling on this one? 


I’m not going to get into our internal deliberations. But, as those of you who have studied this issue closely 
know, there aren’t alot of choices in this area. The President mentioned some alternatives in his speech, such 
as having a third party hold the data, or combining existing authorities, better information sharing, and 
recent technological advances. 


Ultimately though, for the reasons we’ve discussed, we believe this option best satisfies the President’s desire 
for an approach that that allows the government to the end bulk collection of telephony metadata records 
under Section 215, while ensuring that the government has access to the information it needs to meet its 
national security needs. 

Isn’t this decision an acknowledgement that the program isn’t as valuable as the administration 
has previously claimed? 

No. As the President said in his speech, it is important that the capability that the Section 215 
telephony metadata program is designed to meet is preserved. At the same time, however, we need a 
new approach that gives the American people greater confidence that their rights are being protected, 
even as our intelligence and law enforcement agencies maintain the tools they need to keep us safe. 
This approach strikes that balance. 

Does this announcement vindicate Snowden? 

No. Our nation’s defense depends in part on the fidelity of those entrusted with our nation’s secrets. 
As the President made clear in his January 17 speech, if any individual who objects to government 
policy can take it in their own hands to publicly disclose classified information, then we will never be 
able to keep our people safe, or conduct foreign policy. 

Will you be prohibiting all uses of Section 215 for bulk collection? 

The changes we have announced today would end bulk collection of telephony metadata records 
under Section 215, and establish a new regime for us to obtain the relevant records in a manner that 
balances our intelligence needs and privacy concerns. We’ve announced a number of specific criteria 
such new legislation should contain. Beyond that, the specific details will need to be addressed as we 
work with Congress. 

Will you be renewing the program indefinitely until Congress acts? 

The current authorization expires Friday. We will be seeking a renewal of that authorization. We 
look forward to working with Congress over the next 90 days to ensure that legislation can be passed 
quickly. 

But what if there’s no legislation in 90 days? 

We think it’s important that a new approach is adopted quickly that addresses the concerns that have 
been raised. If that doesn’t happen by the time of the next renewal, we’ll address that issue then. 

Will you be requiring new data retention time periods? 

Under the President’s proposal, records would remain at the telephone companies for the length of 
time they currently do today.

So you’re relying on the FCC regulation specifying 18 months? 

As you note, there’s already an FCC regulation requiring records to be kept for at least 18 months. 
We are not planning on seeking legislation that would extend that time period. 

Doesn’t it present a national security concern to go from 5 years of data to only 18 months? 

Over the last several months we’ve taken a hard look at the program, and one of the tasks the 
President gave us was to match as much of its existing capability as possible to meet our operational 
needs. 

Under the existing program, NSA keeps the records for their intelligence value 5 years. However, 
there have been concerns raised about mandating a similar retention period for data held by the 
providers. 

We’ve taken a hard look at the program, and determined that we can get enough of the information 
we need here to satisfy our operational needs if the telephone companies keep the records for the 
length of time they do today. 


Why do you need this legislation at all, can’t you do this under existing authority? 

A few points here. First, as the President noted in his January 17 speech, although the telephony 
metadata bulk collection program was subject to oversight by the FISC and has been reauthorized 
repeatedly by Congress, it was never before subject to vigorous public debate. Thus, as we look to 
transition to a new regime, doing so through transparent legislation is consistent with the desire to 
restore public confidence. 

Second, what we’re talking about here is a regime to obtain data quickly, up to two hops in response to 
a query, and to provide that data to the government in a timely, usable format. We think tailored 
legislation is the best way to accomplish all of these objectives. 

Third, Section 215 is scheduled to sunset next year, so legislation will be required in any event. 

So will the providers be required to change how they store the records? 

The legislation, and the resulting Court orders, would compel the providers to provide technical 
assistance to ensure the information is searchable, to run the queries, and to give the records back to 
the government in a usable format and on a timely basis. 

I can’t speak to the precise way in which particular providers would implement that. 

Will the companies be compensated? 

We envision that the legislation will provide for the government to compensate the companies for any 
technical assistance they provide. This is similar to other provisions of FISA that require companies to 
be compensated for complying with lawful Court orders. 

Did you consult with the companies? 

We have consulted with the companies on these issues. We believe the President’s proposal addresses 
issues that are of importance to them. 

The records would remain at the telephone companies for the length of time they currently do today. 

The companies would also receive Court orders, compelling them to provide technical assistance to 
ensure the information is searchable, to run the queries, and to give the records back to the 
government in a usable format and on a timely basis. They would be compensated for this assistance. 


There have been press allegations about another alleged bulk collection program by CIA. Would 

10/18/2016

these changes cover that? 


Page 178 


While I’ve seen those reports, I won’t be commenting on them. 

The President’s January 17 speech, and the decisions announced today, describe changes that we are 
seeking to the NSA Section 215 bulk telephony metadata program. 

The HPSCI proposal would apply beyond just CT targets to all FI targets, are you proposing the 
same expansion of this authority? 

I’m not going to comment on specific bills before Congress at this point in the process. 

More generally though, the existing program only allows for queries of numbers associated with 
specified terrorist groups. Our operational focus is to make sure we preserve that authority in any new 
legislation. Beyond that, we’re open to consulting with Congress on these issues. 

The HPSCI bill proposes a regime like 702, is that what you want? 

Without commenting on specific bills before Congress at this point in the process, we believe there is a 
bipartisan agreement that the government should no longer collect this data in bulk under Section 
215, and that a change is needed. As to the specifics, we believe there should be prior approval by a 
FISC Judge of individual numbers to be queried, except in emergencies. 

Won’t FISC approval slow things down? 

Court approval is obtained quickly in law enforcement and national security matters all the time, 
including under FISA. Additionally, we believe there should be an emergency exception. 

As you know we had prior experience with FISC pre-approval for a period of several months back in 
2009, and again this year since the President announced that change in his speech. Based on that 
experience we believe we can satisfy our intelligence needs with this approach, especially with an 
exception for emergency situations. 

We believe this solution is not only workable, but is the best solution to address both our intelligence 
needs and privacy concerns. 

Won’t getting the records from the companies be slower than already having the records in your 
possession? 

One of the aspects of our proposal would be that the companies would be required to respond to 
requests in a timely fashion. We believe that requirement would address the timeliness concern 
animating the question. 


We’ve heard from some sources that the FISC process is too slow, and that only a small number 
of queries have been approved, is that true? 

We believe, based on our extensive consultation with the IC, including the views of the NSA, that 
prior FISC approval is workable, and that it is in fact the best solution here. 

As you know we had prior experience with FISC pre-approval for a period of several months back in 
2009, and again this year since the President announced that change in his speech. Based on that 
experience we believe we can satisfy our intelligence needs with this approach, especially with an 
exception for emergency situations. 

How would the emergency exception work? 

The precise details of that are something we will work out with Congress in the legislation but I’d note 
two things: 

First, we have an emergency exception now under the reforms the President announced in January. 

10/18/2016 


This version of Total Mail Converter is not registered. 


Page 179 

That exception requires approval from a high ranking government official in an emergency 
circumstance when a Court order can’t be obtained first. The documentation is then submitted to the 
FISC for approval within 7 days. Those procedures are contained in the Government’s motion and 
Court order we declassified in February. 

Second, we have longstanding experience emergency provisions in other parts of FISA. We’re 
envisioning a similar regime to that. 


Will you be sending up a draft bill to Congress? 

We are entering this phase of the consultative process without specific Administration text, and 
planning to work with Congress to craft legislation that embodies the key attributes of this new 
approach. 

How will the data of foreigners be handled under this new regime? 

Under the Section 215 program, even as recently modified at the President’s direction, the government 
is holding bulk telephony metadata records that concern both U.S. persons and non-U.S. persons. 
Under the President’s proposal, we will no longer use Section 215 to collect these telephone records in 
bulk — whether it is U.S. person records or non-U.S. person records. 

So does this mean you’re ending all bulk collection of metadata? 

The changes the President announced today relate to the NSA’s Section 215 bulk telephony metadata 
program, under which certain telephone companies are compelled to provide their call detail records in 
bulk to the NSA. That bulk collection should end. 

Beyond that, I can’t comment on other alleged intelligence activities. But, I would note generally, that 
as PPD-28 makes clear “locating new or emerging threats and other vital national security information 
is difficult, as such information is often hidden within the large and complex system of modern global 
communications. The United States must consequently collect signals intelligence in bulk in certain 
circumstances in order to identify these threats.” 

However, when signals intelligence are collected in bulk, they will only be used to meet specific 
security requirements: combatting (1) espionage and other threats and activities directed by foreign 
powers; (2) terrorism; (3) weapons of mass destruction; (4) cybersecurity threats; (5) threats to U.S. or 
allied forces; and (6) transnational criminal threats, including illicit finance and sanctions evasion. 

We’ve heard from some in Congress that they weren’t consulted. Is that right? 

Considering changes to such complex policy and legislative issues requires extensive consultation 
between the Administration and Congress — as well as privacy groups, industry, and other 
stakeholders. 

Without listing what we consider to be an extensive effort to date soliciting stakeholder input from 
outside the Administration, we now have Presidential policy direction from which we will begin the 
next phase of consultations as Congress develops and considers legislation. 

Did you consult with PCLOB? 

Yes, and we believe this approach is in line with the recommendations in PCLOB’s report regarding 
Section 215. The bulk collection of this data under the existing Section 215 statute will stop, and the 
information will be obtained pursuant to individualized legal process. 


As both the NYT editorial board and Senator Leahy said, if the President wants to end bulk 
collection under Section 215, it’s in his power to do so, why is he seeking a renewal of the FISC 
order? 


10/18/2016

Page 180 

As the President said, and as his announcement makes clear, he understands the concerns that have 
been raised with this program, and has determined that the bulk collection of these records under 
Section 215 should end. 

At the same time, he must consider our security needs. The transition we’ve announced, including the 
reforms to the current program announced in January, is a responsible path forward to ensure that we 
appropriately balance our security needs and privacy concerns until new legislation can be enacted. 

What are you going to do with the data already collected under the existing program? 

For now, the existing program will continue, with the substantial modifications in place. 

We hope that new legislation will be enacted soon that allows us to end the existing program; when 
that happens, we’ll address the question of the old data, of course taking into account the fact that a 
District Court in California has ordered us to preserve the data for now because of the pending civil 
lawsuits. 

How would NSA handle the results it receives from the providers? Would those go into the 
“corporate store” and be searchable by any analyst? 

Under our proposal, the retention and dissemination of any data received would be subject to FISC 
approved minimization procedures. 

The details of where the data would be stored and accessed once it is received would be governed by 
those minimization procedures, just as minimization procedures govern how we handle the data we 
currently receive. 

Would the FBI still need to be involved with the applications under your proposal? 

Not necessarily. Under Section 215, the FBI was required to be involved because of the way the 
statute, which pre-dates this program, was written. Since our proposal focuses on the NSA being able 
to analyze these records, that’s a question we can expect to address in working through new legislative 
language with Congress. 

Of course, the program is designed to help locate individuals inside the US with possible ties to 
terrorists, so from an investigative perspective we’d expect the FBI and NSA to work closely together in 
response to any leads developed. 

Under your proposal, would the companies produce the data on a continuous prospective basis? 

Our proposal would require the government to go to the FISC and seek a court order for each number 
that is used to query the data. That order would then compel the companies to produce the historical 
records up to two hops. 

We would envision that the government could also request that the Court direct the continuous 
prospective production of those records for a limited period of time, provided that there was a 
documented national security need for such continuous production approved by the judge . 

Any continuous production would be for a limited time period, absent re-approval by a judge that the 
need for the production still exists. We will work with Congress on what that time period should be, 
but it should be limited and set forth in the statute. Other provisions of FISA provide for similar 
renewals of Court authority, for instance at 90 day intervals. 

The current program allegedly only collects less than 30% of the data. Is this an expansion of 
the program? 

Currently, we are collecting the data in bulk, a process which will be ending. 

While I can’t get into specifics, obviously there are costs and technical limitations to the amount of 
data that can be collected and held in bulk. Under our proposal, rather than collecting it in bulk, we

would send individual queries to the companies. 

Presumably the companies would run those queries against all of the records in their possession, 
thereby providing comprehensive results back to the government. But, the government would only 
receive back responsive records, not all records, so we’d be holding less data, not more. 

There’s a story out in the press that SSCI previously considered this option back in 2011 and 
rejected it? 

I’m not going to comment on specifics of engagements with the Committee, but we’ve long said, including in 
congressional hearings and other engagements last fall, that we were open to alternatives where the data 
would stay with the companies, provided that appropriate legislation is enacted. We believe what we’re 
proposing accomplishes that.

John, 

Hello from UN HQ in New York, where the post-201 5 development agenda was just agreed by acclamation! 
Thought I'd give you an update of how things ended up, and pass along the attached agreement. 

Negotiations continued non-stop since Friday night until 6pm on Sunday. USUN, led by Tony Pipa, was 
negotiating hard on means of implementation, climate, and peace and security, which became the biggest 
sticking points in the document. 

The US was perceived as the bully in the room by developed and developing countries alike, due to the tone 
of a few of their statements and what was seen as a patronizing presence of Amb. Power on Friday. Not much 
support from EU colleagues, who wished to close days ago. Wild rumors that the U.S. was trying to "blow up" 
the process were counteracted by the team here, who instead instructed DC that the momentum in the room 
meant that they must reach agreement now, rather than punt to September. 

A deal on climate was struck late Saturday night, by using language (see below) that has all been previously 
agreed in prior climate agreements. 

The final deal-making revolved around language on foreign occupation and self-determination... i.e. Palestine. 
The co-facilitators were able to pull together language that everyone could live with, without forcing any new 
commitments. 

In the end, all delegations are left extremely exhausted, but pleased with the work of the last three years. 

Many harkened to the legacy of the High Level Panel. Next step is September, when the 1 7 goals and 
accompanying declaration will be adopted by Heads of State. 

Enjoy your vacation! 

Kate 


Climate language: 

We acknowledge that the UNFCCC is the primary international, intergovernmental forum for negotiating the global response to climate change. We 
are determined to address decisively the threat posed by climate change and environmental degradation. The global nature of climate change calls for 
the widest possible international cooperation aimed at accelerating the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions and addressing adaptation to the 
adverse impacts of climate change. We note with grave concern the significant gap between the aggregate effect of Parties’ mitigation pledges in 
terns of global annual emissions of greenhouse gases by 2020 and aggregate emission pathways consistent with having a likely chance of holding the 
increase in global average temperature below 2 °C or 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. 

Looking ahead to the COP2 1 conference in Paris in December, we underscore the commitment of all States to work for an ambitious and universal 
climate agreement. We reaffirm that the protocol, another legal instrument or agreed outcome with legal force under the Convention applicable to all 
Parties shall address in a balanced manner, inter alia, mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development and transfer, and capacity-building, and 
transparency of action and support.

Subject: G E-Puerto Rico 


Dear John - I hope this email finds you well. I’ve been reading that the President’s climate change agenda 
is moving forward and see that your impact on the Administration has been felt immediately. 

I write to you because GE notified us yesterday that next Friday. June 20. 2014 , it will announce that it’s 

closing two of its plants in Puerto Rico. One of the plants employs 400 people and its operation will be 
outsourced to a company in the Dominican Republic. The other plant employs 180 people, and 40% of its 
operation will be transferred to GE-Mexico, the balance of the operation will be terminated because of 
downsizing. These plants, as most of GE’s operations in Puerto Rico, are part of the Company’s Industrial 
Solutions division and manufacture electrical equipment such as circuit breakers. GE contemplates to begin 
the drawdown fairly soon and complete the closings by the end of 2015. 

GE and Puerto Rico have a long history of working together, in fact, GE was one of the first American 
companies to establish operations in Puerto Rico when the island embarked on the industrialization of its 
economy. And as recently as September 2013, GE and the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company 
(“PRIDCO”) executed an agreement whereby PRIDCO extended the term of the lease agreements of all 
the sites that GE leases from PRIDCO (approximately 41 1 ,690 square feet) until 2018. These leases are 
heavily subsidized. PRIDCO also provided GE with $3,771 ,500 in job creation/retention incentives. As part 
of the agreement, GE agreed to preserve the 1 ,900 jobs it sustains in Puerto Rico and create 25 additional 
jobs in its factory in the island of Vieques. 

We had been hearing rumors that a restructuring of GE’s operations might be in the works and tried to 
engage GE’s senior management but have had little success. All we want is an opportunity to meet with 
GE’s senior management to discuss how we can try to save these jobs. We’ve been successful in 
competing against Mexico and other countries with low labor costs and trust that we can present a 
compelling case to GE to keep these jobs on American soil. As you know, Jeffrey Immelt was part of the 
President’s Jobs Council and has been a strong advocate of the Administration’s agenda of creating jobs in 
the United States. I would be terribly grateful if you can ask the Company’s senior management to grants 
us an opportunity to meet before they proceed with this decision to outsource jobs. In the current juncture 
that Puerto Rico is facing, to have a company like GE announce that it is leaving us to move to other 
countries, threatens whatever success we’ve had so far in restoring confidence in our economy. 

I’ve also reached out to Senator Menendez on this matter and hope to be able to connect soon with Ms. 
Valerie Jarrett. 

I know you have many matters on your plate but we just can’t afford to lose these jobs. I thank you for any 
help you may provide. 

Kind regards, 

Alejandro

Subject: CEA's analysis of new data on slow growth in health care costs 


Please find below CEA’s blog post on new data showing slow growth in health care costs continuing in 2015. 

https://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/09/22/new-data-show-slow-health-care-cost-growth-continuine 


New Data Show Slow Health Care Cost Growth is 
Continuing 


New data released today by the Kaiser Family Foundation show that premium growth in employer-sponsored coverage remained slow in 201 5, 
extending the recent streak of unusually slow growth. Taken together with estimates of current trends in Medicare spending released this 
summer, these data suggest that underlying growth in per-enrollee health care costs remains low, even as the dramatic expansion in coverage 
since early 2014 drives a temporary uptick in the growth of aggregate health care spending. Recent years’ slow growth in health care 
costs — which is thanks in part to the Affordable Care Act — is already generating major benefits for workers and our fiscal outlook. Looking 

ahead, keeping these positive trends going will require that we continue to make good use of the tools provided by the Affordable Care Act, 
including: moving our health care system toward payment models that reward efficient, high-quality care; continuing to foster a transparent 
and competitive Health Insurance Marketplace; and implementing the law’s tax provision that encourages high-cost employer plans to become 
more efficient. 


SIX KEY POINTS ON NB/V DATA ON EMPLOYER COVERAGE IN 201 5 


1. Premiums in employer-based coverage continued to grow slowly in 2015. The new Kaiser survey finds that the average premium for 
employer-based family coverage grew 4.2 percent in 201 5. While slightly faster than the record-tying 3 percent rate recorded in 2014, this reading 
for 201 5 continues the recent pattern of unusually slow growth; the last four years account for four of the five lowest growth rates since the 
survey began in 1 999. The Kaiser estimates corroborate earlier estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employer Cost Index that showed 
that slow growth in employers’ health benefit costs continued into 2015, as well as results from a national survey released last week by the 
consulting firm Mercer, which found that employers have seen slow growth persist through 2015 and expect it to continue into 2016. 


Sustained slow premium growth is generating major benefits for families and businesses. Had premium growth since 2010 matched the average 
rate recorded over the preceding decade, the average total premium for employer-based family coverage would have been nearly $2,600 higher in 
201 5. A large portion of these savings have accrued directly to workers in the form of lower premium contributions. Employers’ savings on their 
portion of premium spending may be reducing total compensation costs in the short run, helping to boost job growth; economic theory and evidence 
indicate that these savings will be passed on to workers as higher wages in the long run.

2. Recent estimates suggest that Medicare spending per enrollee is continuing to grow slowly as well. In July, the Office of the 
Actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released updated projections of growth in per-enrollee spending in Medicare for 
2014 and 201 5. While these estimates are projections, they reflect data on actual Medicare spending for all of 2014 and part of 201 5, so they tend 
to be particularly reliable. Nominal Medicare spending per beneficiary is projected to grow just 1 .0 percent in 201 5, only slightly faster than recent 
projections of overall inflation in 2015 and slower than measures of inflation that exclude the recent sharp decline in energy prices. If this 
projection holds, then 201 5 will be the sixth consecutive year in which growth in Medicare spending per beneficiary was roughly in line with 
overall inflation economy-wide, a stark contrast to trends over the decade preceding 201 0.

Note: Medicare spending growth for 2015 is a CMS projection. GDP price index for 201S is a CBO projection. The 
Medicare growth rate for 2006 has been adjusted to remove the effect of the introduction of Medicare Part D. 


3. The continued slow growth in per-enroiiee spending in employer coverage and Medicare shows that the pickup 
in aggregate health care spending growth since the start of 2014 largely reflects transient effects of expanding coverage. Data for 
the last several quarters have shown a turn toward faster (though still moderate in historical terms) growth in aggregate spending on the three 
largest categories of health care goods and services: hospital services, ambulatory services, and prescription drugs. 


However, this faster aggregate growth does not reflect rapid growth in the cost of health care for an individual or a family; the data presented 

10/18/2016

Page 191 

above for the two largest segments of the United States health care system indicate that growth in per-enrollee costs has ticked up only modestly, 
if at all. Rather, the driving factor is likely the significant expansion in insurance coverage since late 201 3 as the main coverage provisions of the 
Affordable Care Act have taken effect, an expansion of coverage that is by far the largest since the decade following the creation of Medicare 
and Medicaid. As we have noted on several prior occasions , it is not a surprise, nor a cause for concern, to see a temporary period of 
faster growth as newly insured individuals begin to access care. 


The exception is prescription drug spending, where the uptick in spending growth is much larger than can be accounted for by recent coverage 
expansions. Available data indicate that the main factor driving faster drug spending has been the arrival of costly, though often effective, new 
therapies. While the implications of the recent acceleration in drug spending for the overall health care spending outlook should not be overstated 
since drug spending currently accounts for only about one-tenth of total health care spending and drug spending growth may decline somewhat 
relative to its recent rapid pace, trends in this area have raised concerns about access and affordability in both the public and private sectors.

Analysis National Income and Product Accounts (prescription drugs, population, GOP price index). 


4. Average deductibles in employer coverage rose again in 2015, but the increase was in line with trends stretching back more 
than a decade. Typical deductibles in employer coverage have been rising for more than a decade, and the new Kaiser data indicate that that 
trend continued in 201 5. As demonstrated in the figure above, however, neither the Kaiser data nor the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (which 
provides a longer-term view on these trends) indicate that deductibles have risen more quickly in recent years. This means that there is no sense 
in which continued growth in deductibles is “cancelling out” the benefits to workers stemming from recent years’ very slow premium growth and 
that rising deductibles are unlikely to be an important reason that premium growth has been so much slower recently than in the past.

5. Virtually all workers enrolled in employer coverage now have a limit on their annual out-of-pocket spending, a protection that 
more than one in six enrolled workers lacked when the ACA became law. One core function of health insurance is to provide protection 
against catastrophic costs in the face of serious illness. Starting in 201 4, the ACA required that all non-grandfathered health insurance plans place 
a limit on total annual out-of-pocket spending, protection which 1 8 percent of workers enrolled in single coverage lacked as of 2010, according to 
the Kaiser survey. The share without an out-of-pocket limit drifted lower after 2010 (possibly in part because firms were preparing for 2014), then 
fell sharply as the ACA requirement took effect; today’s data show that just 2 percent of workers in single coverage lacked such a limit in 2015. If 
the prevalence of out-of-pocket limits had remained at its 2010 level, we estimate that at least 22 million people enrolled in employer coverage 
would lack this protection today.

6. The persistence of slow health care cost growth raises the likelihood that much of the health care cost slowdown reflects 
long-lasting structural changes in the health care sector, including changes in public policy, not the aftereffects of the Great 
Recession or other transitory factors. As we have discussed previously , the Great Recession likely played some role in reducing health 
care cost growth during the downturn itself and in the early stages of the recovery (at least in the private sector). However, the United States is 
now more than six years into an economic recovery that has created 13.1 million private sector jobs over 66 months of job growth and driven the 
unemployment rate back to levels last seen in the spring of 2008, before the worst of the financial crisis hit. It is therefore increasingly likely that 
whatever role macroeconomic factors may have played in the immediate aftermath of the Great Recession, structural changes in the health care

system — including changes in public policy and other factors that would have a persistent effect on health care spending over the long run — are 
playing the lead role in keeping health care cost growth low today.

Dear Friends: 

As he departed the presidency in 1961, Dwight D. Eisenhower summarized the foreign 
policy accomplishments of his administration. Ending the Korean War and preserving 
peace in the Middle East were among them. But, he also noted a few of the world's 
continuing dangers, starting with what he called the "Communist penetration of Cuba" 
which he labeled a real and serious threat. 

Defining the challenges of his final year in office, President Obama used his last State of 
the Union address to make his most forceful appeal to Congress to "lift the embargo" on 
Cuba since he announced the new U.S. policy toward Cuba in December 2014. 

"Fifty years of isolating Cuba," he said, "had failed to promote democracy, setting us back 
in Latin America. That's why we restored diplomatic relations, opened the door to travel 
and commerce, and positioned ourselves to improve the lives of the Cuban people. You 
want to consolidate our leadership and credibility in the hemisphere? Recognize that the 
Cold War is over. Lift the embargo ." 

Congress had heard the appeal before; during last year's address, after explaining the 
purpose behind his shift in policy, the President said , "Congress should begin the 
work of ending the embargo." 

Tuesday night he hit it harder - making it two years in a row that he urged Congress to 
take down what presidents dating back to Eisenhower had built up. 

Everything is happening so fast. Our compassion, concerns, and anxieties are pulled in a 
dozen different directions. But, isn't this a time when we could stop and admire the beauty 
of this historical moment? 

Two years in a row a U.S. president actually said the state of the union would be stronger 
by ending the embargo against Cuba. "The mere knowledge that such a work could be 
created makes me twice the person I was," Goethe said. 

Tuesday night we felt that way, too; even more, after dozens of Members of Congress 
heard what the president said and rose from their seats to applaud. Stop for a minute and 
smell that coffee! 

As we previously reported , there is majority, bipartisan support nationally for ending the 
embargo, including among Floridians and Cuban Americans. With Congress hesitant to 
act, the upcoming election, and the impending close of President Obama's second term, 
there is a greater sense of urgency in Washington and Havana to push Cuba policy 
forward in 2016. 

In just a few weeks, Representatives Tom Emmer (MN-6) and Kathy Castor (FL-14), lead 
sponsors of legislation to repeal the trade embargo t are bringing a partisan delegation 
from the U.S. Congress to visit Cuba to build support for opening travel and trade relations 
with Cuba among the new or uncommitted colleagues who will accompany them. 

Aside from the difficult task of adopting such sweeping legislation in an election year, 
diplomacy has brought changes to the U.S. -Cuba relationship, such as the restoration of 
commercial airline service, direct mail service, and direct phone service, and U.S. ports 
and U.S. businesses are seeking ways to use the new authorities granted by administration 
policies to create commercial relationships with Cuban counterparts. All of this builds on 
the policy opening in anticipation of a new president taking office in January 2017. 

Josefina Vidal, who leads the Cuban side of the normalization talks, told the official

Cuban News Agency that she's "beginning to feel a certain bit of realism as the electoral 
process in the United States approaches; we don't know what's going to happen." 

Neither do we. But, just like Governor McAuliffe hit the accelerator of the 1957 Chevy he 
drove through the streets of Havana during his trade mission to Cuba last week, we're part 
of a larger effort to encourage policymakers, business leaders, advocates and experts to 
wrench as much change as possible out of U.S. policy before the next president is sworn 
in. We have a year and hope to put it to good use. 

Sincerely, 


Your Cuba Central Team

U.S. -CUB A RELATIONS 

Cuba will participate in U.S. co-sponsored regional security conference 

Cuba will participate in an annual Caribbean regional security conference in Jamaica later 
this month co-sponsored by the U.S. military's Southern Command later this month, 
according to Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly. "We've normalized now and, regardless of 
how we think of each other in terms of politics, we have very, very common challenges," 
Gen. Kelly said at a briefing at the Pentagon, AP reports . 

Senior military officials from 16 Caribbean countries, the U.S., UK and others will 
participate in the three-day conference, which will focus on cooperation to combat the 
drug trade, human trafficking, and weapons smuggling. Cuba may use the conference as 
an opportunity to raise its objection to the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, AP 
reports . Gen. Kelly thinks the U.S. Navy base could be run jointly with the Cubans, but 
recognizes that "It wouldn't be appropriate" at this stage in relations. 

Port of Miami eyes new ferry terminal to Cuba, showing evolution in Miami 
politics 

Last week, Juan Kuryla, Miami-Dade port chief, discussed the possibility of a new ferry 
terminal in Miami after receiving several requests from major worldwide ferry operators 
for a location to launch ferry service from Miami to Havana, the Miami Herald reports . 
The day after Kuryla made the public announcement, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez 
clarified that, "We don't do business with countries. We just do business with carriers... 
Where the ferry services decided to go in order to make money, etc., well, that's up to the 
ferry service as long as it's legal." Xavier Suarez, Miami-Dade County Commissioner,

Page 196 

added that "We don't want to get left behind if ferry service is in fact started," according 
toNPR . 

Mayor Gimenez and County Commissioner Suarez are both Cuban-Americans. Their 
statements reveal a growing interest in economic possibilities that, in turn, are reshaping 
politics in Miami around Cuba. "There was criticism from some in the Cuban-American 
community, but compared to the firestorm anything involving Cuba has often sparked in 
the past, it's a sign that in Miami, times have changed," NPR noted . 

Several U.S. operators have already been granted ferry licenses from the U.S. 

Treasury , but approval in Havana has taken longer than expected and executives 
estimate that Florida-Cuba ferry service isn't likely to start until late 2016. "Cuba needs to 
develop terminal facilities for proposed ferries from Florida, complete with customs and 
immigration processing and room to handle passengers and freight. That requires millions 
of dollars in investment," the Sun Sentinel reports . 

Meanwhile, three U.S. -based cruise lines are awaiting pennission from Cuban authorities 
to begin sailing to Havana from Miami this winter and spring, according to the Miami 
Herald . Reuters reported in December that Switzerland-based MSC Cruises was the 
first of the four global cruise lines in the world to start operations in Cuba. 

Update: First group of Cuban migrants in Costa Rica flown to El Salvador, 
headed for the U.S. 

On January 12, 180 Cubans were flown from Costa Rica to El Salvador and taken on a 
bus to Mexico and on to the U.S., according to the Economist . On January 13, 

Granma, the Cuban state-run newspaper, reported that the group of Cuban migrants 
arrived in Mexico, where the National Institute of Migration (INAMI) provided permission 
documents to allow them to continue their journey to the U.S. "This disjointed itinerary is 
the result of an agreement among several Central American countries and Mexico to allow 
the migrants through while discouraging new arrivals. " the Economist explains. 

In November, Nicaragua closed its borders to Cuban migrants, leaving 8,000 stranded in 
Costa Rica and 2,000 in Panama, according to Univision . The International Organization 
of Migrations said the first group was selected based on their ability to afford the trip, 
which costs about $550, Univision reports . Katia Rodriguez, Director of Costa Rica 
Migration, said that the countries involved will meet next week to decide the next stages 
for those who remain. 

In 2015, more than 43,000 Cubans arrived in the U.S. between January and September, an 
80% increase over the same period in 20 14. This significant uptick in migration is often 
attributed to a fear that as relations with the United States improve, Cubans will lose the 
special immigration status they receive under the Cuban Adjustment Act (CAA) of 1966, 
as we have reported . The editorial boards of several major newspapers, including the 
New York Times, have called for ending the CAA, and one bill has been proposed in 
the U.S. House of Representatives which would do just that. Others, like CubaNow 
executive director Ric Herrero, argue that the CAA should be dealt with at the same 
time as the embargo itself. 

Sommerhoff, Miami-Dade's director of Emergency Management, says the county is ready 
to "absorb" the 8,000 Cuban migrants who are currently stranded in Central America, 
reported the Miami Herald in December 2015 . "Not everyone has family in the United 

States - and although the mayor of Miami is concerned that the city's not prepared, at the 
county, there's confidence . Que vengan. Let them come," the Miami Herald advocated. 
Musicabana Foundation announces Major Lazer concert in Cuba 
Major Lazer - whose records include Peace Is the Mission and Free the Universe 
will be one of the first major American musical acts to perform in Havana since U.S. and 
Cuba restored diplomatic relations, announced the Musicabana Foundation , a new 
nonprofit organization developing year-round U.S. -Cuba cultural events. Major 
Lazer will perform in Havana on Sunday, March 6, 2016 as part of the four-day 
Musicabana festival. 

Fabien Pisani, founder and festival director of Musicabana, expressed his excitement about 
partnering with Major Lazer, as well as his hope to highlight "Cuba's music scene[, which] 
is bursting with the same raw talent and energy of decades past." 

Musicabana will host concerts in three venues, Plaza San Francisco de Asis, Salon Rosado 
of la Tropical, and La Piragua. The festival will be free to the Cuban public; international 
visitors will be able to purchase special travel packages and VIP tickets. 

Musicabana will feature performances by Cuban and international artists including Pablo

Cuba's 2016 Economic Outlook 

The self-emploved sector in Cuba continues to capture U.S. attention and investment 
The majority of "cuentapropistas," self-employed Cubans, work in food services, followed 
by transportation, and house and event space rentals, according to data from the Ministry 
of Work and Social Security cited by EFE . The Ministry of Work details that of the 
total number of cuentapropistas, 17% are Cubans who maintain state sector jobs, 30% are 
youth, 30% are women, and 12% are retired Cubans. 

On Monday, EFE published an article on the status of Cuba's self-employed sector, 
citing a slight decrease in the number of Cubans working in outside the state sector since 
June 2015. On the same dav. OnCuba published an article bv Cuban economist Dr. C. 
Juan Triana Cordovi, who reports that the self-employment sector employs 27% of the 
country's work force. While Dr. Triana is optimistic about the growth of the self- 
employment sector, he is advocating further changes in his country's economic model. 
Specifically, he hopes 2016 will bring access to wholesale markets and an increase in 
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to mitigate the negative factors of the decline in 
economic growth, which President Raul Castro announced will be 2% in 2016. According 
to Reuters . President Castro attributed the decline to "financial limitations associated 
with the fall in earnings from traditional exports," including nickel and sugar. 

Unilever invests $35 million in joint venture at Mariel Special Development Zone 


On Monday, Unilever announced its plans to return to Cuba with a $35 million investment 
in a joint venture, Unilever-Suchel S.A., to create a toothpaste and soap factory in the 
Mariel Special Development Zone. The Dutch-British company is the ninth firm to get 
approval from Cuba's government to operate in Mariel. Cleber LLC, a tractor assembly 
companv based in Alabama, was the first U.S. finn to receive approval in November 
2015. 

Last week, the Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne 
Ploumen announced that she hopes that the Netherlands will "acquire a pole position" in 
Cuba.accordinu to Forbes . Representatives from maior Dutch companies, including 
Philips andHeineken. joined Minister Ploumen on her trip to Cuba. Telegraph reports. 

In 2012, Unilever left Cuba after a dispute over the stipulation that the state hold the 
majority stake in joint ventures with foreign companies. "Now Unilever NV will have a 
majority 60 percent stake compared to 40 percent for the Cuban state company 
Intersuchel S.A.." Reuters explains . 

The factory, planned to open by 2018, will produce shampoo, detergent, soap, and 
toothpaste, items that are in high-demand on the island and especially in the growing 
tourism sector. 

CUBA'S FOREIGN RELATIONS 

Update: FARC peace talks continue in Cuba 

On Wednesday, the FARC-EP delegation and the Colombian government resumed 
discussions to end the armed conflict that has persisted in their country for more than a 
half centurv. according to Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Relations . MINREX. Thev have 
sustained peaceful negotiations in Havana since November 2012. 

In September 2015, President Juan Manuel Santos and FARC-EP leader, Timoleon 
Jimenez, announced that they would sign a peace accord on March 23, 2016. However, 
the FARC-EP negotiator, Joaquin Gomez, said that there are factors that could make it 
difficult to sign an accord by that date.

Marcy 

It was nice talking with you the other night. I share your frustrations with the present Clinton campaign. As promised, I 
attach a proposal for how I would repair it. I also attach a resume so these words are not quite a voice from the 
wilderness. I have been working on these ideas for a long time. 

Let me say that I am willing to help this campaign in any way they would wish should they decide to pursue something like 
what I propose, either to help or to lead. I have few calendar obstacles and I would willingly give them up, even go to New 
York, if the campaign decided I could be of benefit. 

I am not concerned about the distribution of these documents. If you think others might warm to their thoughts, feel free 
to distribute. 

I would also appreciate your own thoughts on the thoughts therein. 

Regards 
Kim Maxwell

PRESS RELEASE 


CDA Applauds Announcement That U.S. and Cuba Will Reopen Embassies 

WASHINGTON — The Center for Democracy in the Americas (CDA) released the 
following statement in reaction to reports that the agreement between Cuba and the U.S. to 
restore diplomatic relations and open embassies in their respective capitals will be 
announced tomorrow. 

"This is a moment we have been working toward for many years," said Sarah Stephens, 
executive director of CDA. "The restoration of diplomatic relations between our countries 
is a major achievement that will help to heal decades of mistrust and will open 
opportunities for the U.S. and Cuba to collaborate on issues of mutual interest like 
immigration, environmental conservation, and regional trade. We applaud the tireless work 
of Cuban and U.S. diplomats, policymakers, academics, and activists who have helped 
make this possible. We are ready to work with all our allies to defend these positive steps 
initiated by President Obama and to move forward with removing the embargo once and 
for all." 

Sarah can be contacted through Simone Duval (202-234-5506) at the CDA office in

Draft Medium Post on Iowa 

There's been even more bluster than usual from the Sanders 
campaign, this time in an effort to disqualify Hillary Clinton's historic 
victory in Monday night's Iowa caucus. 

Disparaging good news for Hillary Clinton has become a pattern for 
the Sanders camp. It you support someone else? You're dismissed 
as part of the " establishment ," unless of course they want 
to claim your support in ads anyways. If a process doesn't go their 
way? It's invalid or flawed or they blame the lowans who ran it. 

In Iowa, the Sanders camp started floating conspiracy theories 
leading up to the caucus. First, it was two weeks ago when they 


10/18/2016

Page 211 


posited that Microsoft might steal the caucus from them. Now that 
the caucus is over, they are calling into question the results that 
were reported by everyday lowans . 

Hillary Clinton won the Iowa caucus with incredibly high turnout - a 
level of turnout the Sanders camp claimed would earn them a win. It 
was a close contest and a hard fought campaign. But Hillary won. 
And once it became apparent that they had lost, the Bernie Sanders 
campaign began to peddle frivolous claims that have been disproven 
in an effort to poison an otherwise historic night for Hillary Clinton, 
our supporters, and volunteers. 

Remember coin flip-gate where people claimed Hillary won all the 
coin tosses? Turns out that wasn't true . In fact, according to the 
official count, Sen. Sanders won more coin tosses than Hillary 
Clinton. 

Or how about the "90 precincts" with no chairs? Also untrue. 
Certainly there were precincts that took a while to report but once 
they all did, it was clear Hillary had won. 

Now the Sanders campaign is disputing the reported results that 
were sent in by everyday lowans - volunteers, no less! - to the 
Democratic Party. All three campaigns have checked the results of 
certain precincts against their own data reported to them from 
volunteers. That's normal. For the Sanders campaign's challenges, 
there are 7 total precincts they are questioning (out of a whopping 
total 1,681 precincts!) and the Iowa Democratic Party is checking the 
results on a few more. And they will follow the same standard 
procedure for these questions as they did for precincts we asked 
them to look at - they'll look at the numbers reported that night, 
check the math and figure out if there are any discrepancies or 
misallocation of delegates. 

Here's the kicker. Even if the Sanders campaign were to win all of 
their challenges - the marginal bump they receive in support would 
not be enough to overcome Hillary Clinton's win margin. Those are 
just the facts. 

Here's the math. 

Total Precincts in Contest: 11 (7 from Sanders and 4 from the Iowa Democratic Party) 
Total State Delegates being Contested: 1. 7947 (not enough to change outcome) 

If every contest were to go In the favor of Sanders: 

HRC = -.775 
Sanders = +. 758 
MOM = +.0166 

It may be inconvenient for the Sanders campaign that Hillary Clinton won the Iowa caucus, 
but it's the truth. Eight years ago Hillary came in third here in Iowa and when she did, she 
congratulated the winner. We suggest Senator Sanders do the same.

Begin forwarded message: 


Hey everyone — 

Ron Klain wrote a riff for HRC and sent it to Teddy on guns. We thought it could make a strong 
Medium post from someone who could really speak to this issue (not HRC and not someone on 
our campaign). 

Here's the draft, which I edited and can personalize depending on who we want to use as an 
author. A survivor of gun violence? An advocate or family member? 

If we can find someone, and if folks want, we could get this posted today to Medium in someone's 
name (not us). Here it is, let me know your thoughts!

Byline: 

«l’m an xyz and here’s why this issue is really important to me» 

This week, President Obama did something no president has ever done. He announced that 
he’ll take new steps to take on the epidemic of gun violence in America — and not a moment too 
soon. Gunshots have now surpassed car crashes as a leading cause of death in our country. 
African Americans are four times more likely to die from a gunshot than any other cause. There 
were 330 mass shootings in 2015. And 147 people in the U.S. were killed by guns in just the first 
four days of 201 6. We can’t go on like this. 

Like most Americans, I’m grateful to President Obama for taking action, and calling on all of 
us — including responsible gun owners — to do the same. I’d expect nothing less from someone I 
voted for twice. And I expect nothing less from our next president. 

I like Senator Sanders, and there are a lot of issues where I agree with him. But when it comes to 
gun violence, he’s not on my side — in fact, he’s taken the side of the gun lobby. 

Senator Sanders talks about supporting gun violence measures. Today, his campaign even said 
that there is “zero daylight between the President and Senator Bernie Sanders on guns.” But 
when you look at his voting record, his actions don’t match his words. 

Senator Sanders voted against the Brady Bill five times. That’s legislation that instituted federal 
background checks for gun sales, and has kept 2 million guns out of the hands of people who 
shouldn’t have them. Senator Sanders voted against it. And against it. And against it. And against 
it. And against it. 

As it turns out, that’s not even his worst vote on guns. He voted to make it more difficult to crack 
down on gun dealers who break the law. And he voted twice for a bill the head of the NRA called 

the most significant piece of pro-gun legislation in 20 years — legislation that gave gun

manufacturers sweeping immunity for their actions. 

The second time the bill came before Congress, President Obama — then a Senator from 
Illinois — and Hillary Clinton both voted against it. 

Senator Sanders voted with the NRA. He said it was “complicated.” 

In America, auto companies, food producers, toy companies, chemical companies — all of these 
industries have to take steps to make sure their product is being used correctly and safely. Not 
gun manufacturers. They’re able to make billions in profits, without being subject to the most 
basic safety standards. And when they make lethal products, they’re able to avoid facing any 
consequences whatsoever, or being held accountable to the people they hurt. 

That’s not complicated. It’s wrong. 

Senator Sanders has been pressed on this vote in every Democratic debate. And the truth is, 
even Hillary Clinton has cast votes she later said she regretted. So I’d understand if Senator 
Sanders would just stand up and say, “I got this one wrong. I made a mistake. I’m sorry.” 

But he hasn’t. He’s defended the vote time and again. Three months ago, he said he would 
“consider” some changes to the law — but he hasn’t come forward with anything since. That 
means more than 8,000 Americans have died from gun violence since Senator Sanders told us 
he might change his position. 

This week, President Obama wrote in the New York Times: 

“Even as I continue to take every action possible as president, I will also take every action I can 
as a citizen. I will not campaign for, vote for or support any candidate, even in my own party, who 
does not support common-sense gun reform.” 

The President is right. This should be an issue we vote on. And no American should be able to 
vote in good conscience for any candidate who is wrong on gun safety. And until he changes his 
position on immunity for gun sellers and gun makers, Senator Sanders is wrong on gun safety. 
And he’s the wrong candidate for President.

How strong is our grassroots campaign to end Citizens United? 


End Citizens United PAC launched in March 2015 -- a brand new organization funded by 
grassroots donors. Over the course of the year, the outpouring of support has been stunning: 

• people have signed on as Citizen Co-Sponsors for the Constitutional Amendment 
to overturn Citizens United. 

• Founding Members have chipped in much needed support for our grassroots 
cause. 

• That's the average donation from our supporters across the country. Half as much 
as any of the presidential candidates. 

John, that's an incredible response... but it's not enough. We have a hard internal goal of 
20,000 Early 2016 Members before the Election Year begins — and barely 72 hours to get there.

End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee dedicated to overturning Citizens United. Our 
goal is to elect as many pro-reform Democrats to the House and Senate as we can. 

We're also going to make campaign finance reform THE issue in next year's elections. To do that, 
we're building the staff and infrastructure we'll need to shine an enormous light on the dark 
money that is corrupting our electoral system. 

This year, we endorsed nearly 70 Senate and House members. Here's what some of them have to 
say about End Citizens United PAC: 

• Sen. Michael Bennet, U.S. Senator in Colorado: "End Citizens United PAC's work is 
critical to building a broad coalition pressuring lawmakers to pass the Constitutional 
Amendment to reverse Citizens United -- and to finally take action on campaign finance 
reform." 

• Rep. Tammy Duckworth, Running for Senate in Illinois: "Proud to have the support of 
End Citizens United. All Americans should have an equal say in who represents them." 

• Rep. Patrick Murphy, Running for Senate in Florida: "I was recently honored to receive 
the endorsement of End Citizens United, the grassroots movement to overturn the court's 
decision." 

We're financially supporting Democrats who have pledged to fight for reform in Congress. By the 
end of the month, we'll have contributed more than $350,000 directly to our endorsed 
candidates -- and we've helped raise an additional $63,000 for these candidates from small dollar 
donors (giving less than $10 on average). 

Next year, well invest strategically in races where the Koch Brothers and related dark money 
groups are attacking our endorsed candidates. But we can only do it with your support. 


Donate right now to help us elect pro-campaign finance reform 


Our work is getting noticed: 


Media outlets including MSNBC, National Journal, and Roll Call recently profiled End Citizens United 
PAC to discuss the work we're doing to reform our broken system. Here's what they've had to 
say: 


• "A new political action committee dedicated to campaign finance reform wants to be 
a big player in 2016, and it's planning to funnel tens of millions of dollars to Democratic 
candidates running in competitive House and Senate races across the country." 

• "The group — which seeks to elect legislators who will fight for a repeal of the 
Citizens United court decision — found in their polling that candidates who want to repeal 
the 2010 court decision would fare better with voters in 2016." 

• "Two shadowy outifts are helping to bankroll Bush's candidacy" ... "These 
odd donations were first spotted by End Citizens United." 


Why is our fight so critical? 

The public backlash against the Citizens United ruling has continued to grow over the years -- 
despite efforts by some Republicans to glorify the case as a free-speech triumph (because they of 
course argue that corporations are people). 

But the 2016 Election could be the watershed moment that finally leads to reform. Every 
Democrat running for President has drawn a hard line in the sand when it comes to Citizens

It'll take a powerful grassroots organization to reform our campaign finance system. And while

Attached is a draft media prep plan for your review. We have a 3:30 pm call today to discuss. We 
accelerated the first prep sessions to have two completed before her Feb 24 speech and Q & A with Kara 
Swisher. The schedule is: 

Feb 18 - Jen and I will meet with her and Huma to talk through past experiences and her needs going 
forward. 

Feb 19 - First group session. I will draft a diagnostic memo and circulate early next week that will be the 
basis for the first part of the session. We are preparing clips of her best interviews to show her. Also 
compiling her worst and analyzing for triggers and her reactions. Will circulate those early next week for 
your feedback and additions. Joel, your preliminary message architecture would be the second part of the 
session as now structured. 

The next sessions are not scheduled yet. Looking forward to your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks, 
Kristina

BENNET 


Friends, 


In 2014, you couldn't watch a Broncos game without being bombarded with nasty attacks. 

That’s because special interests shattered outside spending records in Colorado - and $23 
million worth of negative attack ads against Mark Udall dominated Colorado’s airwaves and 
helped hand the Senate to extremists. 

“Dark money” groups will only air more false attacks to defeat us and protect their interests in the 
Senate. The Kochs’ network alone is scheming to spend nearly $1 billion. 


This isn't only about defeating ideologues; it's about protecting our values, and we have to be 
ready. Please, we need your help to raise $15,000 in the next 48 hours to build a campaign that 
can overcome every attack. Will you give $5 or more now and become one of our first 
2015 grassroots supporters? 



If you've saved payment info with ActBlue Express , your donation will go through immediately: 

Click to donate $5. 

Click to donate $25. 

Click to donate $50. 

Or click here to donate another amount. 


Mark my words, friends: Big-money outside interests are going to turn the volume way up this 
cycle. 

If we’re going to retake the Senate, we have to be ready. Voters share our commitment to 
protecting our natural resources, innovating toward a 21st-century economy, and making it 
easier for all kids to earn a college education. 

But we have to push our message out over all the lies and false attacks. Join us. 
Give now to help us raise $15.000 and launch a arassroots-powered campaign 
to win in Colorado and take back the Senate. 


Thank you,

Subject: Computer science education — follow up from Linkedln finance event 


Teddy: 

The founders of code.org are eager to see Hillary make statements in support of computer science education 
and to have us participate in the hour of code. They put together some info below, include stats on jobs in our 
first four states. 

Can you advise me on if / how it would be appropriate to discuss / debate inside the campaign? 

I cc'ed John on this email since this was a hot topic at the Reid Hoffman / Linkedln finance event and there was 
incredible support for Ali's request by the entrepreneurs / Silicon Valley leaders in the room. It seems worthwhile 
to have a response to these guys. 

Thanks, 

Steph

Stephanie, we were separately introduced by jocelyn goldfein. Manny, I didn't expect our paths to cross so 
quickly :) 

Just to expand on what AN wrote. There are currently 600,000 open jobs in this field, across every state. There 
are more jobs than graduates in almost every congressional district. 

One easy way for Hillary to engage is to work with us around the Hour of Code campaign. Last year President 
Obama hosted an Hour of Code at the White House . This year we have some really big plans involved, with a 
special focus on women in computer science, which would be a perfect fit for Hillary's involvement. 

That said, I believe this is a broadly bi-partisan, popular issue that could call for MUCH more than just a 
marketing stunt. There's opportunity for a bipartisan sputnik-moment call to action that the whole country can get 
behind. 

One thing to consider, Any time Hillary says "STEM", if she instead said "Computer science" she'd have more 
voters understand and support her. 

Of course, STEM is critically important to our country. However, STEM is not where the job growth is or 
where the gender disparity is . STEM is also not where the HI B skilled immigration problem is . 

And finally, for winning an election, "STEM" is not what voters react to. Below are some simple poll results we 
got from a 18+ US audience: 

Do you know what STEM education means? 

77% NO 
23% YES

Do you know what "computer science" means? 

69% YES 
31% NO 

Is STEM education important? 

44% I'm not sure what that is 
34% YES 
22% NO 

Is computer science education important? 

69% YES 
18% NO 

1 3% I'm not sure what that is 

This is a very bi-partisan topic. Republicans strongly support computer science, and with the growing threat of 
cybercrime it's increasingly \ an issue of national security. 

Aside from the story of the Arkansas governor who won a campaign on computer science, we've had 16 states 
pass legislation or policy changes for computer science, almost always with near-unanimous votes of support. In 
Washington state, 91 % of the population answered "Yes" on a poll asking if it's important to expand access to 
computer science. Many other states have similar levels of support. 

I'd love to work with the Clinton campaign to help sharpen a focus on this issue. Even if it's just participation in a 
marketing gimmick around the Hour of Code.

Manny, Lindsey, & Stephanie, 

(cc: Hadi Partovi, Reid Hoffman) 

Thanks for the "town hall" at Linkedln. I'm the guy who spoke up about Computer Science education. 

I've been giving Stephanie an earful, with powerful stats to back it up. I'm copying the rest of you to intro Hadi 
Partovi of Code.org and to emphasize that this is not about "technology" or "Silicon Valley." 

Computer Science is about jobs and equity in every state in America , and it wins elections . 

There are 5,000 open computing jobs in Iowa; 2,000 in New Hampshire; 4,000 in South Carolina; 3,000 in 
Nevada. Like every state in the union, their economies desperately need more Computer Science. This is an 
historic opportunity to lift up an entire generation of young Americans, a chance to level the playing field and 
rebuild the American Dream. 

Computer Science is real and resonates with voters (far more than "STEM"). Computer Science helped win 
the recent election in Arkansas for Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R). Whichever candidate embraces it first will be 
seen as a visionary leader when it comes to about jobs, economic growth, and America's future. 

The world's best champion for this topic is Hadi Partovi, my twin brother and co-founder of Code.org. Linder 
his leadership, Code.org has helped reform education standards in 18 states, has partnered with America's 
largest school districts to train 25,000 teachers, and has built an enormous movement around the "Hour of 
Code," touching 100 million students worldwide.

Dear Friend: 

As we mourn the victims of Sunday's shooting spree at a Sikh house 
of worship, we are also reminded that it is too easy for guns to fall into 
the wrong hands. 

While nothing may have stopped this event or the recent 
theater shooting in Colorado, it is clear that the status quo must 
change. 

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has called on each 
member of Congress to agree that convicted felons, convicted 
domestic abusers, terrorists and people found to be dangerously 
mentally ill have no business carrying a gun. Please click here to tell 
Congress you want them to enact common sense legislation to stop 
gun violence. 

Please click here to send Congress a clear message — and please 
share this email with your friends, family and co-workers so they can 
join us, too. 

Thank you.

Granted that Amy Chozick will not go down in the history of great political reporters, it get tiring 
enduring stories about the brilliant opinions of "The Clinton Team.". Amy insults Bill Clinton by 
making him look like a geriatric case who needs to be controlled by consultants, and the 
consultants insult Hillary Clinton by making her look like a candidate whose heart, brain and 
husband are managed by consultants. "The Clinton Team" is diminishing both Bill and Hillary 
Clinton and it is not good. Bill Clinton is the Babe Ruth of politics and it is idiocy--and wrong — 
for him to be insulted by "The Clinton Team" in the New York Times. Brent

Nomi Prins: The Clintons and Their 
Banker Friends 


by Nomi Prins 

The past, especially the political past, doesnt just provide clues to the present. In the realm 
of the presidency and Wall Street, it provides an ongoing pathway for political-financial 
relationships and policies that remain a threat to the American economy going forward. 

When Hillary Clinton video-announced her bid for the Oval Office, she claimed she wanted 
to be a champion for the American people. Since then, she has attempted to recast herself 
as a populist and distance herself from some of the policies of her husband. But Bill 
Clinton did not become president without sharing the friendships, associations, and 
ideologies of the elite banking sect, nor will Hillary Clinton. Such relationships run too 
deep and are too longstanding. 

To grasp the dangers that the Big Six Banks (JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of 
America, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley) presently pose to the financia 
stability of our nation and the world, you need to understand their history in Washington, 
starting with the Clinton years of the 1990s. Alliances established then (not exclusively witl 
Democrats, since bankers are bipartisan by nature) enabled these firms to become as 
politically powerful as they are today and to exert that power over an unprecedented 
amount of capital. Rest assured of one thing: their past and present CEOs will prove as 
critical in backing a Hillary Clinton presidency as they were in enabling her husbands years 
in office. 

In return, todays titans of finance and their hordes of lobbyists, more than half of whom 
held prior positions in the government, exact certain requirements from Washington. 

They need to know that a safety net or bailout will always be available in times of 
emergency and that the regulatory road will be open to whatever practices they deem 
most profitable. 

Whatever her populist pitch may be in the 2016 campaign and she will have one note that, 
in all these years, Hillary Clinton has not publicly condemned Wall Street or any individual 
Wall Street leader. Though she may, in the heat of that campaign, raise the bad-apples or 
bad-situation explanation for Wall Streets role in the financial crisis of 2007-2008, rest 
assured that she will not point fingers at her friends. She will not chastise the people that 
pay her hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop to speak or the ones that have long 
shared the social circles in which she and her husband move. She is an undeniable 
component of the Clinton political-financial legacy that came to national fruition more than 
23 years ago, which is why looking back at the history of the first Clinton presidency is 
likely to tell you so much about the shape and character of the possible second one. 

The 1992 Election and the Rise of Bill Clinton 

Challenging President George H.W. Bush, who was seeking a second term, Arkansas 


10/18/2016

Page 249 

Governor Bill Clinton announced he would seek the 1992 Democratic nomination for the 
presidency on October 2, 1991. The upcoming presidential election would not, however, 
turn out to alter the path of mergers or White House support for deregulation that was 
already in play one iota. 

First, though, Clinton needed money. A consummate fundraiser in his home state, he 
cleverly amassed backing and established early alliances with Wall Street. One of his key 
supporters would later change American banking forever. As Clinton put it, he received 
invaluable early support from Ken Brody, a Goldman Sachs executive seeking to delve into 
Democratic politics. Brody took Clinton to a dinner with high-powered New York 
businesspeople, including Bob Rubin, whose tightly reasoned arguments for a new 
economic policy, Clinton later wrote, made a lasting impression on me. 

The battle for the White House kicked into high gear the following fall. William Schreyer, 
chairman and CEO of Merrill Lynch, showed his support for Bush by giving the maximum 
personal contribution to his campaign committee permitted by law: $1,000. But he wanted 
to do more. So when one of Bushs fundraisers solicited him to contribute to the 
Republican National Committees nonfederal, or soft money, account, Schreyer made a 
$100,000 donation. 

The bankers alliances remained divided among the candidates at first, as they considered 
which man would be best for their own power trajectories, but their donations were 
plentiful: mortgage and broker company contributions were $1.2 million; 46% to the GOP 
and 54% to the Democrats. Commercial banks poured in $14.8 million to the 1992 
campaigns at a near 50-50 split. 

Clinton, like every good Democrat, campaigned publicly against the bankers: Its time to end 
the greed that consumed Wall Street and ruined our S&Ls [Savings and Loans] in the last 
decade, he said. But equally, he had no qualms about taking money from the financial 
sector. In the early months of his campaign, BusinessWeek estimated that he received $2 
million of his initial $8.5 million in contributions from New York, under the care of Ken 
Brody. 

If I had a Ken Brody working for me in every state, Id be like the Maytag man with nothing 
to do, said Rahm Emanuel, who ran Clintons nationwide fundraising committee and later 
became Barack Obamas chief of staff. Wealthy donors and prospective fundraisers were 
invited to a select series of intimate meetings with Clinton at the plush Manhattan office of 
the prestigious private equity firm Blackstone. 

Robert Rubin Comes to Washington 

Clinton knew that embracing the bankers would help him get things done in Washington, 
and what he wanted to get done dovetailed nicely with their desires anyway. To facilitate 
his policies and maintain ties to Wall Street, he selected a man who had been instrumental 
to his campaign, Robert Rubin, as his economic adviser. 

In 1980, Rubin had landed on Goldman Sachs management committee alongside fellow 
Democrat Jon Corzine. A decade later, Rubin and Stephen Friedman were appointed 
cochairmen of Goldman Sachs. Rubins political aspirations met an appropriate opportunity 
when Clinton captured the White House. 

On January 25, 1993, Clinton appointed him as assistant to the president for economic 
policy. Shortly thereafter, the president created a unique role for his comrade, head of the 
newly created National Economic Council. I asked Bob Rubin to take on a new job, Clinton 
later wrote, coordinating economic policy in the White House as Chairman of the National 

Economic Council, which would operate in much the same way the National Security

Council did, bringing all the relevant agencies together to formulate and implement policy 
[l]f he could balance all of [Goldman Sachs] egos and interests, he had a good chance to 
succeed with the job. (Ten years later, President George W. Bush gave the same position 
to Rubins old partner, Friedman.) 

Back at Goldman, Jon Corzine, co-head of fixed income, and Henry Paulson, co-head of 
investment banking, were ascending through the ranks. They became co-CEOs when 
Friedman retired at the end of 1994. 

Those two men were the perfect bipartisan duo. Corzine was a staunch Democrat serving 
on the International Capital Markets Advisory Committee of the Federal Reserve Bank of 
New York (from 1989 to 1999). He would co-chair a presidential commission for Clinton on 
capital budgeting between 1997 and 1999, while serving in a key role on the Borrowing 
Advisory Committee of the Treasury Department. Paulson was a well connected 
Republican and Harvard graduate who had served on the White House Domestic Council 
as staff assistant to the president in the Nixon administration. 

Bankers Forge Ahead 

By May 1995, Rubin was impatiently warning Congress that the Glass-Steagall Act could 
conceivably impede safety and soundness by limiting revenue diversification. Banking 
deregulation was then inching through Congress. As they had during the previous Bush 
administration, both the House and Senate Banking Committees had approved separate 
versions of legislation to repeal Glass-Steagall, the 1933 Act passed by the administration 
of Franklin Delano Roosevelt that had separated deposit-taking and lending or commercial 
bank activities from speculative or investment bank activities, such as securities creation 
and trading. Conference negotiations had fallen apart, though, and the effort was stalled. 

By 1996, however, other industries, representing core clients of the banking sector, were 
already being deregulated. On February 8, 1996, Clinton signed the Telecom Act, which 
killed many independent and smaller broadcasting companies by opening a national market 
for cross-ownership. The result was mass mergers in that sector advised by banks. 

Deregulation of companies that could transport energy across state lines came next. 
Before such deregulation, state commissions had regulated companies that owned power 
plants and transmission lines, which worked together to distribute power. Afterward, 
these could be divided and effectively traded without uniform regulation or responsibility 
to regional customers. This would lead to blackouts in California and a slew of energy 
derivatives, as well as trades at firms such as Enron that used the energy business as a 
front for fraudulent deals. 

The number of mergers and stock and debt issuances ballooned on the back of all the 
deregulation that eliminated barriers that had kept companies separated. As industries 
consolidated, they also ramped up their complex transactions and special purpose 
vehicles (off-balance-sheet, offshore constructions tailored by the banking community to 
hide the true nature of their debts and shield their profits from taxes). Bankers kicked into 
overdrive to generate fees and create related deals. Many of these blew up in the early 
2000s in a spate of scandals and bankruptcies, causing an earlier millennium recession. 

Meanwhile, though, bankers plowed ahead with their advisory services, speculative 
enterprises, and deregulation pursuits. President Clinton and his team would soon 
provide them an epic gift, all in the name of U.S. global power and competitiveness. 

Robert Rubin would steer the White House ship to that goal. 

On February 12, 1999, Rubin found a fresh angle to argue on behalf of banking 

deregulation. He addressed the House Committee on Banking and Financial Services, 

10/18/2016

Page 251 

claiming that, the problem U.S. financial services firms face abroad is more one of access 
than lack of competitiveness. 

He was referring to the European banks increasing control of distribution channels into the 
European institutional and retail client base. Unlike U.S. commercial banks, European 
banks had no restrictions keeping them from buying and teaming up with U.S. or other 
securities firms and investment banks to create or distribute their products. He did not 
appear concerned about the destruction caused by sizeable financial bets throughout 
Europe. The international competitiveness argument allowed him to focus the committee 
on what needed to be done domestically in the banking sector to remain competitive. 

Rubin stressed the necessity of HR 665, the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, 
or the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, that was officially introduced on February 10, 1999. He saic 
it took fundamental actions to modernize our financial system by repealing the Glass- 
Steagall Act prohibitions on banks affiliating with securities firms and repealing the Bank 
Holding Company Act prohibitions on insurance underwriting. 

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Marches Forward 

On February 24, 1999, in more testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, Rubin 
pushed for fewer prohibitions on bank affiliates that wanted to perform the same functions 
as their larger bank holding company, once the different types of financial firms could 
legally merge. That minor distinction would enable subsidiaries to place all sorts of bets 
and house all sorts of junk under the false premise that they had the same capital beneath 
them as their parent. The idea that a subsidiarys problems cant taint or destroy the host, 
or bank holding company, or create catastrophic risk, is a myth perpetuated by bankers 
and political enablers that continues to this day. 

Rubin had no qualms with mega-consolidations across multiple service lines. His real 
problems were those of his banker friends, which lay with the financial modernization bills 
prohibition on the use of subsidiaries by larger banks. The bankers wanted the right to 
establish off-book subsidiaries where they could hide risks, and profits, as needed. 

Again, Rubin decided to use the notion of remaining competitive with foreign banks to 
make his point. This technicality was unacceptable to the administration, he said, not least 
because foreign banks underwrite and deal in securities through subsidiaries in the United 
States, and U.S. banks [already] conduct securities and merchant banking activities abroa< 
through so-called Edge subsidiaries. Rubin got his way. These off-book, risky, and barely 
regulated subsidiaries would be at the forefront of the 2008 financial crisis. 

On March 1, 1999, Senator Phil Gramm released a final draft of the Financial Services 
Modernization Act of 1999 and scheduled committee consideration for March 4th. A bevy ol 
excited financial titans who were close to Clinton, including Travelers CEO Sandy Weill, 
Bank of America CEO, Hugh McColl, and American Express CEO Harvey Golub, called for 
swift congressional action. 

The Quintessential Revolving-Door Man 

The stock market continued its meteoric rise in anticipation of a banker-friendly conclusion 
to the legislation that would deregulate their industry. Rising consumer confidence 
reflected the nations fondness for the markets and lack of empathy with the rest of the 
worlds economic plight. On March 29, 1999, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 
10,000 for the first time. Six weeks later, on May 6th, the Financial Services Modernization 
Act passed the Senate. It legalized, after the fact, the merger that created the nations 
biggest bank. Citigroup, the marriage of Citibank and Travelers, had been finalized the 
previous October. 

10/18/2016

It was not until that point that one of Glass-Steagalls main assassins decided to leave 
Washington. Six days after the bill passed the Senate, on May 12, 1999, Robert Rubin 
abruptly announced his resignation. As Clinton wrote, I believed he had been the best and 
most important treasury secretary since Alexander Hamilton He had played a decisive role 
in our efforts to restore economic growth and spread its benefits to more Americans. 

Clinton named Larry Summers to succeed Rubin. Two weeks later, BusinessWeek reporter 
signs of trouble in merger paradise in the form of a growing rift between John Reed, the 
former Chairman of Citibank, and Sandy Weill at the new Citigroup. As Reed said, Co- 
CEOs are hard. Perhaps to patch their rift, or simply to take advantage of a political 
opportunity, the two men enlisted a third person to join their relationship none other than 
Robert Rubin. 

Rubins resignation from Treasury became effective on July 2nd. At that time, he 
announced, This almost six and a half years has been all-consuming, and I think it is time 
for me to go home to New York and to do whatever Im going to do next. Rubin became 
chairman of Citigroups executive committee and a member of the newly created office of 
the chairman. His initial annual compensation package was worth around $40 million. It was 
more than worth the hit he took when he left Goldman for the Treasury post. 

Three days after the conference committee endorsed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley bill, Rubin 
assumed his Citigroup position, joining the institution destined to dominate the financial 
industry. That very same day, Reed and Weill issued a joint statement praising Washingtor 
for liberating our financial companies from an antiquated regulatory structure, stating that 
this legislation will unleash the creativity of our industry and ensure our global 
competitiveness. 

On November 4th, the Senate approved the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act by a vote of 90 to 8. 
(The House voted 36257 in favor.) Critics famously referred to it as the Citigroup 
Authorization Act. 

Mirth abounded in Clintons White House. Today Congress voted to update the rules that 
have governed financial services since the Great Depression and replace them with a 
system for the twenty-first century, Summers said. This historic legislation will better 
enable American companies to compete in the new economy. 

But the happiness was misguided. Deregulating the banking industry might have helped th 
titans of Wall Street but not people on Main Street. The Clinton era epitomized the vast 
difference between appearance and reality, spin and actuality. As the decade drew to a 
close, Clinton basked in the glow of a lofty stock market, a budget surplus, and the 
passage of this key banking modernization. It would be revealed in the 2000s that many 
corporate profits of the 1990s were based on inflated evaluations, manipulation, and fraud. 
When Clinton left office, the gap between rich and poor was greater than it had been in 
1992, and yet the Democrats heralded him as some sort of prosperity hero. 

When he resigned in 1997, Robert Reich, Clintons labor secretary, said, America is 
prospering, but the prosperity is not being widely shared, certainly not as widely shared a« 
it once was We have made progress in growing the economy. But growing together again 
must be our central goal in the future. Instead, the growth of wealth inequality in the 
United States accelerated, as the men yielding the most financial power wielded it with 
increasingly less culpability or restriction. By 2015, that wealth or prosperity gap would 
stand near historic highs. 

The power of the bankers increased dramatically in the wake of the repeal of Glass- 

Steagall. The Clinton administration had rendered twenty-first-century banking practices

similar to those of the pre-1929 crash. But worse. Modernizing meant utilizing government- 
backed depositors funds as collateral for the creation and distribution of all types of 
complex securities and derivatives whose proliferation would be increasingly quick and 
dangerous. 

Eviscerating Glass-Steagall allowed big banks to compete against Europe and also 
enabled them to go on a rampage: more acquisitions, greater speculation, and more risky 
products. The big banks used their bloated balance sheets to engage in more complex 
activity, while counting on customer deposits and loans as capital chips on the global 
betting table. Bankers used hefty trading profits and wealth to increase lobbying funds 
and campaign donations, creating an endless circle of influence and mutual reinforcement 
of boundary-less speculation, endorsed by the White House. 

Deposits could be used to garner larger windfalls, just as cheap labor and commodities in 
developing countries were used to formulate more expensive goods for profit in the upper 
echelons of the global financial hierarchy. Energy and telecoms proved especially fertile 
ground for the investment banking fee business (and later for fraud, extensive lawsuits, 
and bankruptcies). Deregulation greased the wheels of complex financial instruments 
such as collateralized debt obligations, junk bonds, toxic assets, and unregulated 
derivatives. 

The Glass-Steagall repeal led to unfettered derivatives growth and unstable balance sheets 
at commercial banks that merged with investment banks and at investment banks that 
preferred to remain solo but engaged in dodgier practices to remain competitive. In 
conjunction with the tight political-financial alignment and associated collaboration that 
began with Bush and increased under Clinton, bankers channeled the 1920s, only with 
more power over an immense and growing pile of global financial assets and increasingly 
open markets. In the process, accountability would evaporate. 

Every bank accelerated its hunt for acquisitions and deposits to amass global influence 
while creating, trading, and distributing increasingly convoluted securities and 
derivatives. These practices would foster the kind of shaky, interconnected, and opaque 
financial environment that provided the backdrop and conditions leading up to the 
financial meltdown of 2008. 

The Realities of 2016 

Hillary Clinton is, of course, not her husband. But her access to his past banker alliances, 
amplified by the ones that she has formed herself, makes her more of a friend than an 
adversary to the banking industry. In her brief 2008 candidacy, all four of the New York- 
based Big Six banks ranked among her top 10 corporate donors https:// 
www.opensecrets.org/pres08/contrib.php?cycle=2008&cid=N00000019 . They have also 
contributed to the Clinton Foundation. She needs them to win, just as both Barack Obama 
and Bill Clinton did. 

No matter what spin is used for campaigning purposes, the idea that a critical distance car 
be maintained between the White House and Wall Street is naive given the multiple 
channels of money and favors that flow between the two. It is even more improbable, given 
the history of connections that Hillary Clinton has established through her associations 
with key bank leaders in the early 1990s, during her time as a senator from New York, and 
given their contributions to the Clinton foundation while she was secretary of state. At 
some level, the situation couldnt be less complicated: her path aligns with that of the 
countrys most powerful bankers. If she becomes president, that will remain the case.

PATRIOTIC FI MILLIONAIRES 


Friend, 

If you ever need proof that money corrupts our political system, look no further than the carried interest tax 
loophole. 

What ‘carried interest’ does which allows hedge fund managers to pay capital gains rates on income that 
logically should be characterized as ordinary income. Meaning that a hedge fund manager on Wall Street 
who makes $1 5,000,000 a year will pay a lower effective tax rate that a kindergarten teacher at your 
neighborhood elementary school. 

It’s tax breaks and loopholes like these that cause Americans to lose faith in their government. And we’re not 
going to be quite about it. 

Tune in tonight to PBS NewsHour, where Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires Morris Pearl will be featured 
discussing this egregious loophole and the need to close it. You can go to the NewsHour website here to

Here is what some of the Patriotic Millionaires have to say about carried interest: 

“I used to be in the money management business and the only reason why people who manage money have 
a lower tax rate than people who actually work for a living is that hedge fund managers are more active at 
making political donations,” said Patriotic Millionaires Chair Morris Pearl, former Managing Director of 
BlackRock Inc. 

"I am in the hedge fund and private equity business and the carried interest loophole is welfare for the 
wealthy," said Patriotic Millionaires Terence Meehan, Chairman of Azimuth Investment Management 

“The real mystery is how this tax break for billionaires has managed to survive all these years when 
everyone knows that it makes no sense for people who have no capital at risk to receive this kind of 
favorable tax treatment,” said Patriotic Millionaire Jeffery Gural, Chairman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank 

“If it quacks like a duck it should be taxed like a duck!” said Patriotic Millionaire Frank Pattitucci, CEO & 
Owner of NuCompass Mobility

The Patriotic Millionaires 


What the carried interest tax loophole reveals about our corrupt political system 

Running a government that works for 300 million Americans is expensive. Running a corrupt American 
government is unsustainable. 

There is no more striking example of the cost of corruption than tax loopholes that benefit the 1 percent of 
the 1 percent. 

In 2014, the top 25 hedge fund mangers made more money than every single kindergarten teacher in 
America. Yet, because of the “carried interest” tax loophole those 25 people actually paid a lower tax rate. 

To put it more starkly, individuals making more than $450 million a year on average are taxed at a lower rate 
than teachers making around $50,000 on average. 

Carried interest allows money managers to treat much of their fees on their clients’ investments as capital 
gains, which are taxed at a maximum rate of 23.8 percent instead of the 39.6 percent rate applied to ordinary 
income. At a time when wages for working people have stagnated at 1 990 levels, it is an outrage for a small 
group of hedge fund operators to have their income taxed at a lower rate. 

Closing the carried interest loophole would be an important step toward a more economically equitable 
America. 

Taxing carried interest at ordinary income rates would raise $18 billion over 10 years, according to a 
Treasury Department estimate. Other tax experts say it would actually generate closer to $180 
b lior in revenue. 

That’s just enough to cover the shortfall in the Highway T rust Fund. That’s half the cost of guaranteeing 
every worker paid family and medical leave. With that money we could ensure every child - rich or poor - has 
the opportunity to attend a pre-K program. 

But when Wall Street has unlimited access to politicians because of campaign contributions, Main Street 
America travels on crumbling roads and bridges, working mothers give birth one day and are back in the 
office the next, and children in lower and middle class families miss out on critical education in their formative 
years. 

President Obama last week renewed his call on Congress to do away with this indefensible tax break ahead 
of the next budget showdown at the end of the month. Leading presidential candidates in both parties - 
Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Jeb Bush - advocate closing the loophole and taxing capital gains as 
regular income. 

But bi-partisan opposition also runs deeps. Last year then-Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) proposed a 
sweeping tax reform plan that included treating carried interest as regular income. The plan was dead on 
arrival. In 2010, the House passed a bill closing the loophole, but it was scuttled in the Senate by members of 
both parties with strong ties to Wall Street.

In 2012 and 2014, financial interests spent 


to help elect politicians from both 


parties to Congress. Managers of Paulson & Co., one of the largest hedge funds, dropped nearly $2.5 
million in the last two federal election cycles. Executives of Elliot Management, another large fund, 
spent $23 million over that time. Savvy investors don’t throw around this kind of money if they aren’t 
getting something back in return. 

Whether it’s a contracting process that awards the companies with the best lobbyists instead of the best 
services, taxpayer funded subsidies to the same multi-billion dollar companies spending millions of dollars to 
elect politicians to office, or the carried interest loophole, everyday Americans pay a heavy price for a 
government of, by, and for wealthy special interests. 

It’s great to see a growing consensus among some White House hopefuls to end preferential tax treatment 
for hedge fund managers, but the fact remains that Congress is still beholden to the wealthy donors funding 
their reelections. 

Severing the ties between Wall Street and Congress with, for example, a small donor matching system that 
incentivizes candidates to raise campaign funds from everyday Americans would not only help us realize the 
promise of democracy envisioned by the Founders, it would also turn the political tide against the carried 
interest loophole and other welfare for the wealthy. 

If we don’t rebalance our democracy so it responds to the needs of the many instead of the few, the middle 
class will continue to bear the costs of corruption.

Subject: Congressional Investigations - Paper Question 


Hi Professor Podesta: 

I had a question about the due date of the final paper for the Congressional Investigations course. I'm a 
graduating senior, and understand that papers for graduating seniors are generally due on April 28. However, 
the syllabus for the class lists a due date on May 9 for graduating seniors. I was wondering if that due date was 
still accurate. 

Thanks very much! Hope you're having a good weekend. 

Best wishes,

Tech giants don’t want Obama to give police access to encrypted phone data 

Tech behemoths including Apple and Google and leading cryptologists are urging President Obama to reject 
any government proposal that alters the security of smartphones and other communications devices so that law 
enforcement can view decrypted data. 

In a letter to be sent Tuesday and obtained by The Washington Post, a coalition of tech firms, security experts 
and others appeal to the White House to protect privacy rights as it considers how to address law enforcement’s 
need to access data that is increasingly encrypted. 

“Strong encryption is the cornerstone of the modern information economy’s security,” said the letter, signed by 
more than 140 tech companies, prominent technologists and civil society groups. 

The letter comes as senior law enforcement officials warn about the threat to public safety from a loss of 
access to data and communications. Apple and Google last year announced they were offering forms of 
smartphone encryption so secure that even law enforcement agencies could not gain access — even with a 
warrant. 

“There’s no doubt that all of us should care passionately about privacy, but we should also care passionately 
about protecting innocent people,” FBI Director James B. Comey said at a recent roundtable with reporters. 

Last fall, after the announcements by Apple and Google, Comey said he could not understand why 
companies would “market something expressly to allow people to place themselves beyond the law.” 

FBI and Justice Department officials say they support the use of encryption but want a way for officials to get the 
lawful access they need. 

Many technologists say there is no way to do so without building a separate key to unlock the data — often 
called a “backdoor,” which they say amounts to a vulnerability that can be exploited by hackers and foreign 
governments. 

The letter is signed by three of the five members of a presidential review group appointed by Obama in 201 3 to 
assess technology policies in the wake of leaks by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden. The 
signatories urge Obama to follow the group’s unanimous recommendation that the government should “fully 
support and not undermine efforts to create encryption standards” and not “in any way subvert, undermine, 
weaken or make vulnerable” commercial software. 

Richard A. Clarke, former cybersecurity adviser to President George W. Bush and one of three review group 
members to sign the letter, noted that a similar effort by the government in the 1990s to require phone 
companies to build a backdoor for encrypted voice calls was rebuffed. “If they couldn’t pull it off at the end of the 
Cold War, they sure as hell aren’t going to pull it off now,” he said. 

Comey, he said, “is the best FBI director I’ve ever seen,” but “he’s wrong on this [issue].”

Congress, too, is unlikely to pass legislation that would require technology companies to develop keys or other 
modes of access to their products and services in the post-Snowden area. 

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have expressed skepticism toward the pleas of law enforcement agencies. 
Rep. Ted Lieu, a California Democrat with a computer science degree, called backdoors in 
software “technologically stupid.” 

Ronald L. Rivest, an inventor of the RSA encryption algorithm (his name is the “R” in “RSA”), said standards can 
be weakened to allow law enforcement officials access to encrypted data. “But,” he said, “you’ve done great 
damage to our security infrastructure if you do that.” 

The issue is not simply national, said Rivest, a computer science professor at MIT who signed the letter. “Once 
you make exceptions for U.S. law enforcement, you’re also making exceptions for the British, the French, the 
Israelis and the Chinese, and eventually it’ll be the North Koreans.” 

The signatories include policy experts who normally side with national-security hawks. Paul Rosenzweig, a 
former Bush administration senior policy official at the Department of Homeland Security, said: “If I actually 
thought there was a way to build a U.S. -government-only backdoor, then I might be persuaded. But that’s just 
not reality.” 

Rosenzweig said that “there are other capabilities” that law enforcement can deploy. They will be “less 
satisfying,” he said, but “they will make do.” 

Privacy activist Kevin Bankston organized the letter to maintain pressure on the White House. “Since last fall, the 
president has been letting his top law enforcement officials criticize companies for making their devices more 
secure and letting them suggest that Congress should pass pro-backdoor legislation,” said Bankston, policy 
director of the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute. 

“It’s time for Obama to put an end to these dangerous suggestions that we should deliberately weaken the 
cybersecurity of Americans’ products and services,” he said. “It’s time for America to lead the world toward a 
more secure future rather than a digital ecosystem riddled with vulnerabilities of our own making.”

New Survey Shows Overwhelming Support among Latinos for Health Care Reform That Includes Public 
Option 

http://www.pr-inside.com/new-survev-shows-overwhelming-support-among-rl607266.htm 

A new poll released today by Latino Decisions, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Flealth Policy at the 
University of New Mexico (UNM-RWJF Center), and impreMedia, shows a widespread consensus among the Latino/ 
Hispanic electoral about the importance of health care reform and indicates significant support for expansion of coverage. 
For the first time health care tops the list of national issues identified by respondents, as the most important issue Congress 
and the President need to address. This is particularly impressive, given that in April 2009 a similar Latino Decisions poll 
found that only 6% of the Latino electorate had identified health care as the most important issue. 

The national survey of 1,000 Latino registered voters shows that there is broad-based and overwhelming support 
not just for health care reform, but 74% support a plan that includes a public option to compete with private 
insurance programs 


Fewer than half of the Republicans and Republican-leaners see the party's leadership as 
taking the GOP in the "right direction" 

http://www.washingtonpost.eom/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/l 1/29/AR20091 12902935_pf.html 

Fewer than half of the Republicans and Republican-leaners surveyed by The Washington Post see the party's 
leadership as taking the GOP in the "right direction," down sharply from this time four years ago. About four in 10 
are dissatisfied with the policy proposals being offered by congressional Republicans, and similar numbers see the 
current crop of GOP legislators as out of touch with their problems and personal values. Nearly a third say the Republicans 
in Congress are not standing up for the party's core values. 


[...] 

Just 1 percent pick George W. Bush as the best reflection of the party's principles, and only a single person in the poll 
cites former vice president Richard B. Cheney. About seven in 10 say Bush bears at least "some" of the blame for the 
party's problems. 


Limbaugh, still, the undisputed leader of the Republican Party . . . 


http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jpAE5xW2-v2cl6Mz3RKj-Osq8eAD9C9GUOGQ 

Poll: Limbaugh is most influential conservative 

NEW YORK — By a wide margin, Americans consider Rush Limbaugh the nation's most influential conservative voice. 

Those are the results of a poll conducted by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair magazine and issued Sunday. The radio host was 
picked by 26 percent of those who responded, followed by Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck at 1 1 percent. Actual politicians 
— former Vice President Dick Cheney and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin — were the choice of 10 percent 
each.

Subject: Help General Sanchez Get to the US Senate 


Jj votevets.org 


Dear John, 

Today I’m writing with some exciting news. We have a chance to send a veteran to the Senate, from Texas. 

Not only that, but this veteran also happens to be a retired Lieutenant General who commanded forces in Iraq. 
Today, we’re endorsing Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez (USA, Ret.) for Senate. He needs your help. 

CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO SANCHEZ FOR SENATE 

General Sanchez has a compelling story and honorably served our country in uniform. He’ll make an 
outstanding Senator for the people of Texas. We're always happy to see veterans entering politics as a way to 
continue their public service, but it's especially encouraging to see one of our military's finest minds, General 
Sanchez, look to continue that service as a public servant. General Sanchez knows what this generation of 
warriors has gone through, and how Washington can best serve them. For the people of the state of Texas, they 
will have a Senator who is committed to America’s security, and just as committed to the state he loves 

General Sanchez graduated from Texas A&l University in Kingsville, Texas, and was commissioned as a second 
lieutenant in 1 973. After decades of service, following nomination to Lieutenant General, he assumed 
command in Baghdad, Iraq, of the Army's Fifth Corps and became the commander of one of the largest combat 
forces deployed in US military history. Upon the reorganization of command-and-control structures in Iraq, he 
commanded Headquarters, Multi-National Forces (Iraq) from 14 May 2004 to 1 July 2004. After 33 years of 
service, he retired in 2006. 

CLICK HERE TO SEND RICARDO SANCHEZ TO THE SENATE 

Texas is a huge state, and running for office there isn’t cheap. But any donation you can afford will go a long 
way towards sending Ric Sanchez to the Senate. This is an open seat, because Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson 
is stepping down, so it is an excellent opportunity for a candidate with strong credentials - like General Sanchez 
- to win. Please click the link above, and help get him to the finish line! 

Sincerely, 

Ashwin Madia

Dear Hannah, attached for the President is the latest biweekly update from CCI. Please note the mention of new CCI requests for 
$30 million in funding for forestry programs, as excerpted below. We'd welcome his feedback. Thanks, Ami 

“CCI has recently submitted several funding proposals for the extension of our forestry work, with more than $30 million 
outstanding. These include a proposal to Australia’s Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) as well 
as four proposals to Germany's Climate Change Initiative (ICI) for landscape restoration in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania; 
integrating project level MRV into the Tanzania national MRV system; climate change adaptation in the Lake Turkana basin; 
and village scale renewable and wood energy in Malawi. We have also submitted a pre-qualification proposal for several 
DFID grants.”

Hello Mr. Podesta, 

I hope you are well. I am writing you to arrange a meeting between Hip Hop icon and visionary Q-Tip and 
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton. He would like to meet with her to discuss ways he can be 
used as bridge to the Hip Hop generation during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

Q-Tip who is an ambassador member of Harry Belafonte’s Sankofa.org has long been highly committed to 
issues of social justice. Q-Tip is devoted to amplifying the voices of the disenfranchised in an effort to promote 
justice, peace and equal rights for all. He is a big supporter of the work Mrs. Clinton has done throughout her 
career and has also worked alongside former president Bill Clinton at a 2003 DNC fundraiser. He even served 
as DJ for Chelsea Clinton’s 25th birthday party in 2005. He’s had a lasting track record with the Clinton’s 
throughout the years. In fact, he had hoped to see Mrs. Clinton at his close friend Tory Burch’s fundraiser 
tomorrow in The Hamptons. However, due to a prior commitment in Los Angeles, he will be not be able to 
make it. 

Q-Tip would love to have short one-on-one with Mrs. Clinton as soon as her schedule permits. He will return 
to New York City on Monday. 

Please let me know what can be arranged at your earliest convenience. Q-Tip is passionate about helping 
Mrs. Clinton secure a victory in this presidential race. Thank you in advance for your time. 

All the best, 

Betsy Jones 

BETSY!

such a strong and human element. The reception from the Ferguson comments worked because she reminded 
people of something larger, and what's at stake. Since she's neither a candidate not a legislator, it makes sense 
and is very natural for her to lean into that a bit, which is an argument for doing this in person.

only Congress can finish the job by passing permanent bipartisan reform that keeps families together, treats

» Her Ferguson comments were so well received, despite criticism for their tardiness, because she said 
something new and unique. It made her look like a leader. I echo Dan's concern that something too generic will 
look like she's merely checking the box, particularly as a paper statement. If the goal is only to tell the press 
immediately that she supports the President, I think Dan's suggestion of a tweet tonight followed by something 
more thoughtful at the event tomorrow, makes sense to me. The press might only care about her backing the 
President, but I imagine there are some vocal constituencies that will look very carefully at the entire statement 
and whether it shows personal concern and thought.

I’ve tried here to express support for POTUS without getting bogged down in the details of what is sure to be an 
unpopular measure, seen as both too much and too little, and then pivot to the need for broader Congressional 
action (defined by a set of principles rather than by slavish attachment to the DOA Senate bill). I also went back 
to our 2013 statement on gay marriage and reprised the theme of urging respectful, substantive debate and 
recognizing that a lot of people aren’t going to agree with us on this. Finally, I tried to root the issue in the lived

Dear Bruce, WJC called earlier today to say we should explore this and be helpful to the extent we think it makes sense within the 
structures of CF and CGI. In short, Eva Gonda (introduced to us by Mark Weiner) would like to undertake a research project to 
develop a workplan for philanthropic organizations interested in improving education (beginning in the US). The Gonda family 
(history below) is willing to fund it. It feels like the best way forward would be for Eva to join CGI (probably beginning with CGI 
America), make this research project her "Commitment to Action," and then we can have a discussion with her next year after 
she's developed "the workplan," to determine together if there is any parts of the workplan that we would want CF to 
operationalize (with funding from the Gonda family). Importantly, Eva is asking if CF can serve right now as a pass-through for 
her to carry out this research, since she doesn't have a 501c3. We can have her join CGI either way, but I got the impression it's 
important for her that we be the pass-through, and I'm only raising this because of the enormous potential WJC and Mark have 
said this family has to be supportive of CF. I'd welcome your guidance. We're probably talking about $80k that would be passed 
through. Thanks, Ami

Ami: 

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me regarding Eva’s project. Attached is per proposal. 

Here’s a little background on the Gonda Family. 

The Gonda story very interesting. Leslie Gonda is a Holocaust survivor; his wife, Susie, who passed away 2 
years ago was a Concentration Camp survivor. They moved to the United States in the early 1 960’s. Leslie is a 
businessman and entrepreneur. He and his son, Lou (Eva’s father) started International Lease Finance in 1973. 
They have been named among Forbes list of riches American billionaires. 

Leslie Gonda has been a major benefactor of many medial institutions, museums, and charities. The Leslie and 
Susan Gonda Foundation has created centers, laboratories, and endowments to meet the needs of vascular, 
diabetes, genetic and neuroscientific research at major medical institutions and universities around the globe. 
Examples of the Gonda’s philanthropy include the Gonda Vascular Centers at UCLA and the Mayo Clinic, The 
Gonda Center for Diabetes and Genetic Research at the City of Hope and Georgetown. 

They believe through education and advances in medicine, generations in the future will be able to meet the 
challenges of an increasingly competitive world and lead productive and meaningful lives. They believe in this 
country that has been so great to them and want to give back. They are willing to fund the cost of this project. 

Looking forward to our meeting Thursday. 

Best, 

Mark

J j Joe Sestak for Senate 


Dear John, 


Every year, Christmas brings the Sestak family together - my wife Susan and our 
daughter Alex join my mom, my brother and seven sisters and their kids. There really 
isn't a dinner table big enough! However we celebrate the holidays -- Christmas, 
Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and others -- this season always seems to bring loved ones 
together. So from my family to yours, we wish you joy and happiness heading into the 
new year.

This year, we have a lot to celebrate, but we also have to remain committed to 
helping one another in these difficult times. Throughout the state, I meet 
Pennsylvanians who have been hit hardest by the recession. One in eleven of us are 
still looking for work. For those who have jobs, wages remain flat while our utility bills 
and grocery bills continue to go up. That's why I've been working in Congress to help 
working families who have borne the brunt of this recession through no fault of their 
own. 

My recent op-ed in the Harrisburg Patriot-News describes what I'm doing to make 
sure the end of this recession becomes a real recovery for Pennsylvania - Click

Helping Laid Off Workers About to Lose Their Health Care 

I am grateful that the House of Representatives included my legislation to extend 
COBRA health benefits in the jobs bill that passed this week. Since I introduced the 
bill in October to assist workers who are still looking for jobs by continuing the 
government's 65 percent subsidy of COBRA'S premium costs for the unemployed, my 
office has been getting emails and calls from coast to coast. The assistance, which I 
helped pass as part of the Economic Stimulus Bill, began to expire starting at the 
beginning of this month. When I recently met with over a dozen people who have lost 
or are about to lose their health care coverage if Congress fails to act, one could so 
readily see the damage unaccountable leadership in Washington has brought about,

and why we need to help those who are being laid off and losing health care through 
no fault of their own. 

Here are some of the clips from our meeting at the Philadelphia Unemployment 
Project office: 

CBS 3 News Report - Click Here 
Fox 29 News Report - Click Here 

Losing one's job is difficult enough. Losing health coverage for ourselves or our 
families, while fearing bankruptcy in the event of injury or illness, is something none 
of us should have to face heading into the holiday season. I now urge the Senate to 
move swiftly and follow our lead in passing this COBRA extension by year's end. 


Here are just a few stories from the people I met with. 


Keeping Families in Their Homes 

My Congressional office has already worked to help hundreds of Pennsylvania 
families facing foreclosure stay in their homes. A survey of five central Pennsylvania 
offices shows that families living in that region could be at the greatest risk -- 
foreclosures are on pace to increase by 30 percent. 

We've taken a number of critical steps to stem the tide of foreclosures, but it is clear 
that more comprehensive action is needed. That's why I introduced a bill to provide 
$100 million in competitive federal matching grants to states and localities that initiate 
foreclosure diversion programs. Philadelphia's program, which brings mortgage 
holders and lenders together for a "conciliation conference," has already helped 
boost the number of mortgage modifications to keep families in their home. Click

We Have to Learn to Work Together 

Many school districts throughout Pennsylvania are suffering from high costs for 
transportation for special education students because of a failure to effectively 
coordinate these services between school districts. So I introduced legislation to 
encourage broader cooperation between school districts. This way, we can reduce 
costs and more efficiently provide educational services to students. Schools in the 
Lehigh Valley are already leading by example. Bethlehem's school district partners 
with Northampton Area School District to cover the costs of sending special education 
students to an out-of-district school. If the two districts did not split the costs, it would 
cost Bethlehem Area double. Click Here 


New Wall Street Safeguards Mark Clear Break with Old Policies 

Just months after passing an Economic Stimulus Bill to rescue America from the worst 
economic downturn since the Great Depression, I helped pass new legislation that will 
restore oversight to the financial markets, provide mechanisms for limiting executive 
pay, and prevent predatory lending practices. Click Here 

These difficult times require leaders who will challenge Wall Street on behalf of 
working families. Still, there are some who will neither stand up and correct the 
abuses that occurred in the gambling with earnings of working families, nor admit 
responsibility for removing the referee from Wall Street and for their role in backing 
the Bush Administration's failed economic policies. Instead, we need principled, 
accountable leadership in government to restore the people's trust in their elected 

officials. 

I disagree with the record of voting by our present Senator, Arlen Specter, when he

supported policies that failed to protect the interests of the working family: 

• De-regulating Wall Street, forbidding any requirement for reporting derivative 
transactions, tearing down the walls between investment companies and 
consumer banks, and removing requirements that banks keep sufficient cash 
reserves on hand. (S. 900, Vote #105, 5/6/99) (H.R. 4577, 12/15/2000) 

• Repeatedly backing Bush's deficit-funded tax breaks for multi-millionaires, 
doubling our national debt from $4.5 trillion to over $9 trillion. 

• Eliminating "pay-as-you-go" (PAYGO) rules, which had created 3 budget 
surpluses under President Clinton by requiring Congress to offset the cost of 
any new spending programs. (H.R. 5708, Vote #482, 1 1/14/2002) 

• Voting to strip a key provision to save homes from foreclosure by empowering 
bankruptcy judges to reduce principal and interest rates for homeowners in 
bankruptcy [S AMDT 1014, 4/30/09], 

Pennsylvanians are still feeling the effects of these misguided policies, which let Wall 
Street greed go unchecked. At its worst point, 7,000 Americans lost their jobs every 
month, and 5.4 million have been looking for work for at least 27 weeks. Families 
have lost homes to foreclosure, bringing down property values across the state. 

Many seniors who have worked their entire lives have seen their retirement savings 
and pensions wiped out. As your next Senator, I'll work to rebuild Pennsylvania for 
everyone. 

As we head into the cool winter months, our campaign to rebuild Pennsylvania 
continues to heat up. We've traveled to all 67 counties, we're taking on the 
establishment, and we continue to grow our support. As we approach the New Year, 
I'm resolved to keep working side-by-side with you so that we can bring a new 
generation of leadership to the U.S. Senate and rebuild Pennsylvania's middle class. 

Here are six ways you can help. 

1. Sign-up to volunteer and represent Joe Sestak at an event in your 
neighborhood. 

2. Contact us to do remote phone-banking to tell people in your community

area. 

4. Tell your friends on Twitter and Facebook that you support Joe Sestak. 

5. Submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper in support of Joe Sestak 
for Senate 

6. Forward this email to at least 5 of your friends and neighbors. 

Thank you for taking part in this campaign! Please forward this email to your

I see that Rick Perry is saying that the financial crisis was caused by the affordable housing goals for Fannie and Freddie 
established under Bill. Are you involved in Hillary's campaign? If so, and if she wants anyone to advise her on this topic, it 
is an area I have worked on for many years. I don't think the housing goals had much to do with the crisis, but to the extent 
that they might have, it was the goals established under George W. Bush.

Sub'ect' '-AS"*" CALL | Manuel Pastor invites your feedback (again) on framework for state-level progressive 
governance 


USC Program foe Environmental 

& Regional Equity 


Dear John, 

As our team returns from site visits in the states of Washington, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, and Nevada, it is clearer than ever 
that states have become key testing grounds for progressive policy ideas, framing, and new organizing strategies. What is 
required to build towards and sustain effective, state-level, progressive governance? What are the characteristics that indicate or 
nourish progressive governance, and what factors explain and move a state towards achieving it? 

We invite you to join us this Thursday, November 5 th from l-3p EST/10a-12p PST for a web-conference by phone with a small set 
of funders, organizers, and academics who have advised us on this States of Change project. States of Change is not just a 
reference to the geography but more so to the "state" of change - or the conditions, arenas, and capacities for achieving 
progressive governance. This will be a follow up to the call we hosted on January 23 and will be the last in our research process 
before we finalize and publicly release our results. 

Since January, we have interviewed over 60 stakeholders in our case study states, refined our preliminary framework based on 
the field interviews, and updated our quantitative assessment of the states with the most recent data available. At this web- 
convening, we will report on our findings, discuss ways in which this framework can be useful in the current political moment, and 
identify potential audiences and users in order to shape plans for the public release. 

We hope that you can join us. We value your guidance for the next phase of our work and for what we hope will be the ultimate 
outcome of this research: a shared platform to facilitate thinking and discussion about long-term investments that can allow for 
social-justice goals to be achieved at scale. 

This is the last call to RSVP at https ://usccollege.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV OOCrDwiE9G8EeZn . If you have any questions, 
please contact Lauren Portillo at IportillfSusc.edu or (213) 740-3643. While this will be a conference call— the main purpose 
is to provoke a lively conversation— there will also be a webinar component. Background materials, agenda, and call-in and 
webinar log-in information will be sent in advance. 

Our best, 

Manuel Pastor, Jennifer Ito, and the team at USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE)

As Presidential Election enters its final weeks... 

SEIU Members Make Health Care Deciding Issue For Uncommitted 

Voters 

New Ad, Field Blitz Targets Undecided Voters With Information On Candidates’ Health Care 

Plans 

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, SEIU announced a new, multi-state television and field campaign aimed at targeting 
undecided voters in the final weeks of the presidential election with information on the difference between the Obama and 
McCain health care plans. 

On Friday, the Associated Press reported that while voters prefer Barack Obama’s health care plan to John McCain’s, 
many voters - particularly independents and seniors - do not have a clear understanding of the differences between the two 
proposals. SEIU’s new effort - which incorporates advertising, mail, phone calls, and door-to-door canvassing - aims at 
providing undecided voters with detailed information about the candidates’ health care plans. 

Beginning Monday, SEIU will begin airing a new television ad, titled “Worried Sick,” in two battleground states. The ad 
underscores the deep concerns working families have about health care - and how John McCain’s health care plan would 
make a bad problem worse by taxing health benefits and denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. In addition to the 
ad, SEIU is engaging voters directly in battleground states across the country: 

• SEIU members are knocking on doors and sharing a new, side-by-side comparison of the Obama and McCain health 
care proposals with voters; 

• SEIU’s Americans for Health Care campaign is distributing a side-by-side comparison to voters; and 

• Nurses, home care aides, and other SEIU healthcare workers are using mail, phone calls, and internet technology to 
reach one million union and non-union healthcare workers with information about the candidates’ plans. 

“With the economy continuing to sour, more and more voters are taking a good, hard look at what how the policy proposals 
offered by Barack Obama and John McCain are going to affect their families’ bottom line,” said SEIU Secretary-Treasurer 
Anna Burger. “Health care is a critical part of that equation, and SEIU members are focusing all of their energy to make 
sure that in these final weeks of the election, voters have the facts about where the candidates stand on health care.” 

Over the past year and a half, SEIU members have made health care a central issue in the presidential election: 

• In March, 2007, SEIU and the Center for American Progress Action Fund hosted the first presidential forum 
focused on health care; 

• In August, 2007, Barack Obama spent the day working alongside home care worker Pauline Beck as part of SEIU’s 
“ walk a day in my shoes ” program; 

• In April, 2008, SEIU launched its first ad of the general election , featuring nurses and other healthcare workers 
expressing their concerns about John McCain’s health care proposals; 

• For four months, SEIU’s Road to American Health Care bus tour traveled 8500 miles, holding events in 17 states 
that featured real people struggling to keep up with rising health care costs; 

• SEIU’s report, “ Making a Bad Problem Worse ,” details how John McCain’s health care proposal would make it 
harder for average families to get quality, affordable health coverage; 

• SEIU has targeted key Senate and House races with mail, phone calls, and earned and paid media - including 
television ads - in order to help elect a pro-health care majority in Congress ; 

• SEIU has helped host dozens of press conferences highlighting how McCain’s health care plan would impact key 
groups, such as women and veterans, and helped release a Center for American Progress state-bv-state analysis 
of McCain’s proposal.

Subject: [big campaign] NSN Daily Update: A Bad Day for U.S. Counterterrorism Policy 


NSN Daily Update: A Bad Day for U.S. Counterterrorism Policy 

After toppling the Taliban in Afghanistan, the Bush administration shifted its focus to Iraq - a country that had nothing to do 
with 9/1 1 — instead of finishing the job. Today, we are still paying for this terrible strategic mistake. In Afghanistan, the 
situation continues to deteriorate as the American commander asks for 15,000 additional troops on top of the increases 
already planned for later this year. In Pakistan’s FATA region, al Qaeda has established a new safe haven. Today, Chairman 
of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mullen is in Pakistan trying to salvage an understanding on how we work with the Pakistani 
government to go after al Qaeda terrorists. And in Yemen we had another reminder of the continued threat as the U.S. 
embassy came under attack. Clearly, the Bush administration’s focus on Iraq - a focus John McCain promises to continue — 
has not helped the U.S. deal with terrorism. 

Six years after the Bush Administration turned from Afghanistan to Iraq, the mission there is under tremendous 
strain, and the American Commander is calling for 15,000 additional troops. Starting in 2002, the Bush Administration 
let its fixation with Iraq draw resources and attention away from this front where the 9-1 1 attacks originated. As a result, 
matters are more dire. In Afghanistan, “about 194 foreign soldiers have been killed this year, the highest number since the 
U.S. -led invasion in October 200 1 . . .On his fourth visit to Afghanistan as defense secretary, Mr. Gates endorsed calls by the 
senior American commander, Gen. David McKiernan, for three more combat brigades (15,000 troops), in addition to the 
extra battalion and extra brigade that President Bush has ordered deployed by early next year.” Moreover, Afghan security 
forces remain incapable of standing on their own, sometimes even imperiling U.S. efforts to hunt Al Qaeda and the Taliban. 
[NY Times, 9/17/08 . Washington Independent, 9/16/08 .] 

Lacking a plan to combat the extremist safe-havens in northwest Pakistan, the U.S. struggles to contain instability 
and deal with increasing frustration from Pakistan’s government. Tensions in Pakistan have jeopardized the U.S.’ 
most important counter-terrorism effort. “The United States' top military officer flew unexpectedly into Pakistan on 
Tuesday night to meet with senior officials amid a tense confrontation between the two allies over recent U.S. military 
incursions into Pakistan in pursuit of al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists.” Events have brought into relief the consequences of 
the Bush Administration’s failure to meet “its national security goals to destroy the terrorist threat and close the safe haven in 
Pakistan’s FATA region.” [Washington Post, 9/16/08 . NSN, 4/24/08 . GAO, 4/17/08 ] 

Attacks on the U.S. embassy in Yemen serve as chilling reminder of how our counter-terrorism strategy has fallen 
short. “Heavily armed militants opened fire on the United States Embassy in Sana, Yemen, on Wednesday and detonated a 
car bomb at its gates, in an attack that left at least 16 people dead including six of the attackers, Yemeni officials said.” 
“Yemen has long been viewed as a haven for jihadists. It became a special concern for the United States in 2000, after Al 
Qaeda operatives rammed the U.S.S. Cole in Aden harbor, on Yemen’s southern coast, killing 17 American sailors.” 
President Bush has expressed his firm belief that Iraq is the “central front” on the war on terror, since al Qaeda will fight 
“wherever we are.” “But, over the past two years, jihadists claiming allegiance to Al Qaeda appear to have reorganized, 
releasing more propaganda material on the Internet and carrying out attacks.” [NY Times, 9/17/08 . President Bush, 6/ 
28/05 . President Bush, 5/24/07 ]

Subject: Washington Blade Op-Ed: O'Malley's amnesia on marriage 

http://www.washinatonblade.com/2015/04/20/omalleys-amnesia-on-marriaae/ 

O’Malley’s amnesia on marriage 

There he goes again. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who once extolled the virtues of centrism, now wants us to believe — in an 
unintentionally hilarious rewriting of history — that he's more liberal than Hillary Clinton and a “profile in courage” when it comes to fighting for 
marriage equality. 

In a not-so-subtle jab at Clinton, O’Malley in a February speech said, “History celebrates profiles in courage, not profiles in convenience. The 
dignity of every person tells us that the right to marry is not a state right, it is a human right.” 

A Clinton aide last week, responding to a Blade inquiry, affirmed that the 2016 hopeful views same-sex marriage as a constitutional right. That 
statement marked a change from her earlier position, articulated in an infamous NPR interview last year, that she viewed marriage as a state 
issue. 

Clinton, like President Obama and Martin O’Malley and many others evolved on the issue. 

The problem with O'Malley is that he’s had more positions on marriage than all the 2016 hopefuls combined. And after pushing for civil unions 
right up until 2011, he now wants voters to believe that he's a pioneer on the issue. What nerve!

Let's revisit O’Malley’s actual record rather than listen to his calculated amnesia. 

In 2004, O’Malley told a Baltimore TV station, “I'm not opposed to civil marriages.” Also that year, he emailed a plaintiff in the state marriage 
lawsuit that read, “I’m just supporting something I strongly believe in,” referring to marriage equality. But by 2006, O'Malley's position was 
shifting and he said, “I was raised to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. This is a fundamental issue of the state’s public 
policy, and a decision that ultimately should not be made by a single trial court judge.” When confronted by gay activists after issuing that 
statement, O'Malley disavowed any previous support of marriage equality. 

After a 2007 Maryland court ruling limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples, O’Malley issued the following statement as heartbroken gay 
residents were busy cancelling their weddings and mourning the court's misguided decision: “I look forward to reading the court’s full opinion, 
but as we move forward, those of us with the responsibility of passing and enforcing laws have an obligation to protect the rights of all 
individuals equally, without telling any faith how to define its sacraments. I respect the court’s decision.” 

Privately, O’Malley had assured gay rights activists and plaintiffs in the case that he supported marriage equality, only to reverse course and 
ultimately invoke his Catholic religious beliefs to justify his support of discrimination. 

From 2008-2010, O'Malley publicly backed civil unions as bills to legalize marriage equality were defeated in committee. He was even booed 
off the stage at a private LGBT donor gathering after advocating for civil unions overfull marriage rights. 

In 201 1 , O’Malley finally said he would sign a marriage bill if passed. “I have concluded that discriminating against individuals based on their 
sexual orientation in the context of civil marital rights is unjust.” That bill ultimately failed. 

It wasn't until New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo embraced the cause of marriage equality as a civil rights issue — and well after Maryland Attorney 
General Doug Gansler did the same — that O’Malley evolved yet again. Whereas Cuomo made it clear even before he was elected that he 
supported full marriage rights and then lobbied for the needed votes to pass it, O'Malley was — until 2012 — the reluctant advocate, offering 
meek, private assurances of support but refusing to publicly embrace the cause, even after winning a second term in a landslide. 

Though he eventually came around to full support and was instrumental in preserving the law after it went to referendum, O’Malley was late to 
the marriage party and certainly doesn't deserve credit for its success. 

O’Malley has, for years, embodied the poll-driven milquetoast politician who checks the wind before staking out a position. Now he wants us to 
believe otherwise. 

“We have the ability as a party to lead by our principles or are we going to conduct polls every time we try to determine where the middle is on 
any given day,” he told NPR this week. 

We should welcome O'Malley’s more progressive positions without forgetting his disappointing record of saying one thing in private and the 
opposite when the cameras are rolling.

Clinton emails^ show „ 

g oncern about image after 
lenqnazi 

WASHINGTON | BY^I^K HOSENBALL AND ALISTAIR BELL 

Top aides to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fretted over how she would be portrayed after the 
2012 Benghazi attacks that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, emails released on 
Friday showed. 

The emails from Clinton's personal email account made public by the State Department do not appear to contain 
any revelations that could badly damage her bid for the presidency in 2016 or provide fodder for Republicans 
who accuse her of being negligent before the Benghazi attacks. 

But they offer a glimpse into how Clinton's team was concerned about her image immediately afterward. 

A senior adviser to Clinton forwarded a fawning email from a State Department official about positive media 
coverage of a statement she gave on Sept. 12, 2012, the day after the killings. 

"Really nice work guys," State Department official Matthew Walsh said in the email to other staffers, which linked 
to a story on the Slate news site praising Clinton's comments about Benghazi as "eloquent." He forwarded the 
email to Clinton with the letters "FYI." 

In another email from September 2012, Sullivan assured the secretary of state that she had used the correct 
language to describe the lead-up to the Benghazi attack by Islamist militants on a U.S. diplomatic compound and 
CIA base. 

U.S. officials' exact wording of the attacker's motivation had become important because the Obama 
administration initially said the assaults were a spontaneous protest against an anti-lslamic film posted on the 
Internet. 


The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations at the time, Susan Rice, drew heavy criticism from Republicans for 
defending this view on Sunday TV shows, even though intelligence indicated within hours that the attacks were 
the carefully planned work of Islamist militia members. 

Sullivan assured Clinton that her language when discussing the attacks in public had been correct. 

"You never said spontaneous or characterized the motives, in fact you were careful in your first statement to say 
we were assessing motive and method," he wrote in an email.

Long a focus of Republican investigators in Congress, accusations that Clinton was negligent on Benghazi are 
putting her under more intense scrutiny now that she is running for the Democratic Party nomination in the 2016 
presidential election. 

Republicans say the Obama administration was lax about the security of U.S. personnel in Libya and then misled 
the public about the nature of the attacks, but various congressional probes have produced little damaging 
evidence. 


The 296 pages of Clinton emails from her time as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013 that were released 
on Friday were the first installment of a rolling release of 55,000 pages of emails ordered by a federal judge on 
Tuesday.

Sorry, GOP. There’s No Smoking Gun 
In Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Emails. 

Conspiracy-minded conservatives, be warned: The trove of Clinton emails don’t prove much 
about her culpability for the infamous 9/11 anniversary attacks. 

If Republicans were looking for a silver bullet to use against Democratic presidential candidate 
Hillary Clinton, the State Department’s Friday document dump about Benghazi wasn’t it. 

There’s no illicit weapons Libyan program to be found in the emails, as some have speculated. 
No ‘stand-down’ order. Just a hectic flow of information to and from Hillary Clinton — about 
danger, about death, and ultimately, about condolences. 

The State Department released Friday 296 emails involving Hillary Clinton during her tenure as 
Secretary of State, from 2009 to 2013. The documents include some 300 emails related to 
Benghazi, which were turned over to the Congressional committee investigating the 2012 
attacks. The attacks left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. 

The hundreds of emails released by the agency show a Secretary of State who was deeply 
engaged on Libyan issues — but usually just in a crisis. While Clinton was a key proponent of 
intervening in Libya to protect civilians under threat from then-Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi, 
her emails show that she took a largely hands off approach towards the country. 

Of course, this document trove is an incomplete view, at best. It excludes any phone calls, 
briefings or memos. It doesn’t include the emails that were deleted by Clinton — and we know 
there were many. (Republicans noted “inexplicable gaps” in Secretary Clinton’s emails over

several time periods, such as from Oct. 201 1 to Jan. 2012, and from April 2012 to July 2012. ) 
And it was released by a State Department that was formerly helmed by Clinton and is still part 
of a Democratic administration. 

But according to her Benghazi-related email traffic, Clinton appears to be only been involved at 
times of crisis and even then deferred to those on the ground, including Stevens and friends 
outside government. 

Clinton’s emails show that the late Amb. Christopher Stevens had multiple brushes with danger 
in Benghazi in 201 1 — more than a year before the September 2012 attacks that would 
ultimately take his life. 

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received an update about Stevens’ 201 1 security 
situation: that there had been intelligence indicating a credible threat to his safety, and that 
officials were moving swiftly out of the hotel he was staying at in Benghazi. 

“There is credible threat info against the hotel that our team is using — and the rest of the Inti 
community is using, for that matter... DS [Diplomatic Security] going to evacuate our people to 
alt locations. Info suggested attack in next 24-48 hours,” wrote top Clinton aide Jacob Sullivan 
in an email to Clinton on June 10, 201 1 , with the subject line, ‘Hotel in Benghazi.’ 

At the time Stevens was a special envoy to Libya, and the U.S. had joined a U.N. campaign to 
set up a no-fly zone to assist rebels in the overthrow of Muammar Oadhafi. 

In a separate incident, in April 201 1 , a State Department official wrote: 

“The situation in Ajdabiyah has worsened to the point Stevens is considering departure from 
Benghazi. The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout (paying the hotel bills, 
moving some comms to the boat, etc). He will monitor the situation to see if it deteriorates 
further, but no decision has been made on departure.” 

The communications received by the Secretary of State illustrate the fast pace of security 
decisions made on the ground — but don’t show Clinton with a direct role in these decisions. For 
example, there’s no indication that Clinton intervened in the decision-making process when told 
about Stevens’ 201 1 security scares. 

Clinton was heavily criticized when it emerged in March that she had used a private email 
server to conduct business while she was Secretary of State. Her private email accounts 
prevented the normal process of archiving official government records. Clinton’s staff had 
turned over some 55,000 pages of email correspondence to the State Department in 
December 2014. 

Democrats on the Select Benghazi Committee had urged the release of Benghazi-related 
emails for months. Clinton herself had urged the State Department to swiftly publish the emails,

telling reporters earlier this week that she wanted them in the public domain as soon as 
possible. 

“I am pleased that the State Department released the complete set of Secretary Clinton’s 
emails about Benghazi — as Democrats requested months ago,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, the 
top Democrat on the committee. 

The American people can now read all of these emails and see for themselves that they contain 
no evidence to back up claims that Secretary Clinton ordered a stand-down, approved an illicit 
weapons program, or any other wild allegation Republicans have made for years. 

In the time between the June 201 1 security scare and the September 2012 terrorist attacks, 
the mood in Libya ebbed and flowed — Stevens left Libya in November 201 1 before returning as 
U.S. ambassador in May 2012. 

In July, Libya held national elections which went off well, leading to people heralding the country 
worldwide. Meanwhile, Islamist flags had emerged on buildings throughout Benghazi. 

The correspondence in summer 2012 shows a somewhat positive situation in Libya: the last 
email from Stevens that Clinton receives paints a rosy picture: in July 2012 Sen. John McCain 
is in Tripoli, Libya, being lauded for his support of the rebels. 

“The atmosphere in Tripoli is very festive,” Stevens wrote in one email on July 7, 2012. “The 
gov’t declared today a holiday and people are driving around honking and waving flags and 
making peace sign gestures... McCain was applauded and thanked for his support wherever 
we went.” 

The world’s focus doesn’t dwell on Libya, and Clinton doesn’t receive additional emails about 
Benghazi again until the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities. 

By September 2012, the situation in Libya had deteriorated. In a diary entry on Sept. 6, 
Stevens wrote about a “security vacuum” and “dicey conditions,” even suggesting that he was 
on an “Islamist ‘hit list’ in Benghazi.” 

On the fateful day of Sept. 1 1 , 2012, at approximately 4 p.m. in Washington, D.C., the first 
attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound occurred. Clinton had previously testified (PDF ) that 
she was at the State Department that day, which could explain why she did not send or receive 
a large volume of emails about Benghazi. 

She becomes more active on emails that evening, and at 1 1 :3 7 p.m., she receives word 
through her Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills that the Libyan government had confirmed Amb. 

Steven’s death. 

“Cheryl told me the Libyans confirmed his death. Should we announce tonight or wait until 
morning?” Clinton wrote in an email to top aides.

“The situation has 
worsened to the 
point Stevens is 
considering 
departure from 
Benghazi. The 
envoy's delegation is 
currently doing a 
phased checkout.” 


Throughout the morning after the initial attacks she has a lot of 
activity: in particular she received a large number of messages 
expressing condolences to her and the State Department over 
the death of the ambassador. 

“The Ambassador was a perfect role model of the kind of 
person we need representing us around the world, and the 
others had so much to give — and already had given so much,” 
said former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates. 


“What a wonderful, strong and moving statement by your boss, please tell her how much Sen. 
McCain appreciated it. Me too,” wrote a top national security aide for Sen. John McCain. 


That weekend, Clinton continued to exchange emails on the Benghazi issue. On Saturday Sept. 
15, the day before Susan Rice appeared on cable shows to make the since-rescinded claim 
that the Benghazi attacks were the result of protests-turned-violent, Clinton was involved 
arranging calls from her home and the collection of an action memo via classified courier. 


The emails give insight into how Clinton operated at the time: using classified couriers to move 
memos and getting on the phone with other world leaders, rather than using email. 


None of the released emails show Clinton being involved with Rice’s appearance on the Sunday 
shows, or the discussion of what Rice should say. She does, however, receive a transcript of 
what Rice would eventually say. 


Findings of the Republican-led Select committee on Benghazi may not be released until 
sometime in 2016, in the thick of campaign season. 


If the Select Committee continues to operate through the end of the 2015, its estimated cost 
will rise to $6 million dollars. The House Select Committee on Benghazi was established in May 
2014. If it continues through to the end of 2015, it will have been investigating for 19 
months — longer than other major, comparable investigations. 


(To compare, the joint inquiry into the intelligence community’s actions with regard to the Sept. 
1 1 , 2001 attacks took less than a year. The Senate Watergate committee operated for about 
17 months before presenting its findings. And the Warren Commission on the assassination of 
President Kennedy operated for under a year.) 


The release of Friday’s Benghazi-related emails has itself been months in the waiting: the State 
Department had been going through an excruciating process of assessing the emails for any 
information that would show sensitive or personally identifiable information, and then removing 
it. The State Department will now turn its attention to performing the same task on thousands 
of Clinton emails that are not related to Benghazi.

In fact, Hillary Clinton’s email correspondence has the potential to generate headlines at least 
through the end of the year, acting as a disruptive force that distracts from her presidential 
campaign. 

For Republican committee chairman Trey Gowdy, the release of these emails are just the first 
step in a long slog to “collect and evaluate all of the relevant and material information 
necessary.” Gowdy said that the emails released Friday had all been exclusively reviewed and 
released only after review by her own lawyers. 

Earlier this week, a federal judge had dismissed a State Department plan to release her email 
archives, comprised of some 55,000 pages of emails, by January 2016. Instead, the judge 
asked the State Department to come up with a plan to gradually release the emails in stages. 

In the nearer term, Hillary Clinton is expected to appear before the Select Committee on 
Benghazi, Gowdy said last week that he will not schedule the former Secretary of State’s 
testimony until the State Department turns over more documents. 

“The Select Committee should schedule Secretary Clinton’s public testimony now and stop 
wasting taxpayer money dragging out this political charade to harm Secretary Clinton’s bid for 
president,” Cummings, a Democrat, said Friday. 

The New York Times obtained and published about a third of the Clinton Benghazi emails 
earlier this week, revealing that longtime Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal had frequently 
written to her about Libya, serving as a source of information about the country before and 
after the 2012 attacks. 

While Blumenthal had originally blamed demonstrators in the American diplomatic facility in 
Benghazi, a subsequent memo fingered a Libyan terrorist group for the attacks, arguing that 
they had used the demonstrations as cover for the violence. This week, the Select Committee 
on Benghazi subpoenaed Blumenthal to appear before the panel.

How Bad Spin Works: A Handy Lesson from the Clinton/Blumenthal E-Mails 
May 22, 2015 3:46 PM EDT 

The sort of intra-Washington chicanery that is not scandalous, but not often revealed. 

The just-released batch of emails from Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State is full of sausage- 
making. It's the sort of intra-Washington chicanery that is not scandalous, but not often revealed, because 
human beings are capable of embarrassment. One of the more excruciating exchanges comes when Sidney 
Blumenthal, the journalist turned Clinton confidant, offered up pro bono spin work during the weeks before 
the 2012 election when Republicans started to ask why the attack on America's consulate in Benghazi had

not been stopped. 

On the morning of October 1 , journalist Craig Unger — best known for the 2004 cui bono bestseller House of 
Bush, House of Saud — published a column in Salon that revealed a "Jimmy Carter strategy" being 
formulated by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. 

"According to a highly reliable source," wrote Unger, "as Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama prepare 
for the first presidential debate Wednesday night, top Republican operatives are primed to unleash a new 
two-pronged offensive that will attack Obama as weak on national security, and will be based, in part, on 
new intelligence information regarding the attacks in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens on 
Sept. 11." 

More than that, the "scoop" made no sense. 

This source of this scoop, wrote Unger, had "firsthand knowledge of private, high-level conversations in the 
Romney camp that took place in Washington, D.C., last week." According to the source, "over and over 
again they talked about how it would be just like Jimmy Carter’s failed raid [on Iran in 1980]," and "they feel it 
is going to give them a last-minute landslide in the election." Curiously, the source predicted that the 
strategy would fail. 

The story went up at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. Forty-three minutes later, Blumenthal sent Hillary Clinton an 
email with the text of the story and the subject "Romney's last gambit. Got done and published." In other 
words, Blumenthal, formerly a Salon columnist, was taking credit for the Romney story being placed in 
Salon. 

In a now-deleted tweet, Romney strategist Stu Stevens snarked that it was "a mistake" to invite Blumenthal 
into a secret strategy session. "This was just a joke," Stevens added in an e-mail, "highlighting he knew 
nothing." 

More than that, the "scoop" made no sense. The Romney campaign was based in Boston, not Washington. 
The idea of hitting the White House over the Benghazi attacks was hardly being dreamed up in 
secret — Romney had done it weeks earlier, and been chastened by a media blowback. Surrogates, 
however, continued to talk plenty about Benghazi. The only point to the story was that it made Romney's 
team look callow, which was how allies of the Obama administration wanted them to look. 

The running theme of Blumenthal's missives to his "old friend," the Democratic frontrunner, is that 
Blumenthal is a gusher of terrible advice. The revelation of these emails is that even terrible advice could 
pay off, if the media was willing to accept a narrative that made the Clintons' enemies look malicious. 
Republicans did not quite need a FOIA to discover that, but it certainly didn't hur

Hello Mr. Podesta, 

Thank you again for taking my call especially considering its unorthodox nature. As I said on the phone, I currently serve as Political director for 
Penn for Hillary: a student-led organization building a Philadelphia base for Hillary Clinton's next political endeavor. Our group started out as a 
campus franchise of Ready for Hillary but after surpassing the goals set by the national organization, we broadened our vision to include the 
greater Philadelphia area. We've formed partnerships with most of the major schools in the trip-state region and we have established a network 
of students approaching 500 members. These partnerships include strong ties to the Pennsylvania College Democrats. 

As I mentioned, we'll be traveling to DC this week to attend the Winter Meeting. Our hope is for us to form more connections within the party and 
to establish ourselves as a resource in Philadelphia. We'd love to meet with you informally if your schedule allows. If we're unable to meet in DC, 
you always have an open invitation to visit us here at Penn (we'd love to have you speak to our student body). 

Travel Details: 

Arriving in DC Thursday evening and leaving Saturday night. 

Delegation Members: 

Mitchell McVeigh, Co-Founder and Co-President 
Emily Irani, Co-Founder and Co-President 
Michael Ramdatt, Political Director

Thanks again for being so kind. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Here's a first cut at HRC's remarks for the IDP dinner. Would love your thoughts. She is reviewing as well. 
A few notes: 

- This opens by recalling previous collaborations with the other Dem candidates. To me, this is a chance to seem big and inclusive when 
they are likely to be trying to drive wedges. Easy to cut, but might be a nice grace note. 

- This draft throws out some red meat early on with Donald Trump to get the crowd jazzed at the top. Then she can do your affirmative 
agenda and circle back to the fuller contrast later on. Plenty of other ways to organize this, but a good hit at the top seemed important. 

- Given the growing controversy over the leaked Planned Parenthood video, with Boehner calling for hearings and other GOPers piling on, 
we should think about whether this is a good time to join the battle and come to Planned Parenthood's defense, or whether it's wiser to stay 
away. For now, its in here. 

- Finally, you'll see a hit on Governor Branstad for his veto of mental health funding. Matt thinks this is a good fight to pick and I agree. 
Gives you a chance to make an emotional appeal on an issue you care about so much. The Governor is also riling folks up with his 
education cuts, so that's in here as well. 

Am going to keep working this and punching up the language, but wanted to share early draft in case folks have initial reactions. 

Thanks

announcement 


U.S. News & World Report and National Council on Teacher Quality 
Launch Comprehensive Review of Nation's Teacher Preparation Programs 

U.S. News & World Report and the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) announced last week the launch of 
a landmark survey. The survey will consist of more than 1,000 schools of education across the country. 
Unprecedented in its scope and comprehensiveness, the project will rate the quality of teacher preparation 
programs from which more than 200,000 new teachers graduate each year. 

The new rating survey, to be published in the second half of 2012, will be useful for both consumers and policymakers. 
Teacher education is a critical national issue, and preliminary data indicates that there are wide variances in the 
quality of programs. Aspiring teachers will be able to identify which programs will best prepare them for the 
classroom, and school districts will know where they should target their recruitment efforts for new hires. Education 
leaders, including university presidents, state superintendents of education and state legislators, will be able to 
evaluate best-and worst - practices across all 50 states. 

"We now know beyond any shadow of a doubt that teacher effectiveness is the single biggest school-based 
contributor to learning," said Kate Walsh, President of NCTQ. "Just like in every other profession, the quality of their 
training has a tremendous impact on how well teachers perform. The only way we will meet the challenge of ensuring 
that all our country's students get the excellent teachers they deserve is to transform teacher preparation." 

U.S. News has long ranked the graduate schools of education as part of its college and university ranking guides. 
The new teacher education review is a separate survey, which will be a more detailed examination of a wide variety 
of graduate and undergraduate programs. 

"We want to know what teachers are being taught," said Brian Kelly, editor of U.S. News. "We're partnering with NCTQ 
because they've developed a great methodology to look deeply into these important institutions and compare them 
across the country." 

U.S. News and NCTQ will award grades to each of the programs under review. They will identify the top schools of 
education in the country as well as the institutions whose program designs fall so far below standard that they leave 
their graduates ill equipped to teach. 

Programs will be rated by their performance on 17 different standards, which were developed by evaluating the 
highest caliber research on education, best practices from both the U.S. and foreign countries with excellent 
educational systems, and the advice of national experts across many subject areas. The standards are calibrated for 
undergraduate and graduate levels, and can be applied to programs that prepare elementary, secondary and special 
education teachers. 

Program ratings will be derived from a digest of course materials (including course syllabi and textbooks) supplied by 
education schools themselves, as well as surveys and other publicly available information. 

NCTQ honed its methodology for the national review by conducting a number of similar, smaller studies across the 
past decade, most recently of the teacher preparation programs of Texas and Illinois. Those reports revealed the 
wide variability of the design quality of teacher training programs -- even within a single institution -- and have 
provoked calls for reform. 

Funding for the project is provided by dozens of foundations across the country with principal funding provided by 
Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, Gleason Family Foundation, The Lynde and 
Harry Bradley Foundation, Searle Freedom Trust, and The Teaching Commission.

About the National Council on Teacher Quality

"Secretary Clinton has already turned all of her work emails over to the State Department, and the Department

Campaign Money Watch Announces Expanded Television Buy In 

Kentucky 

Group's spending nears $ 1.2 million to challenge McConnell on his "clout" 


Washington, D.C. - Campaign Money Watch, a national nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog group, announced 
today that it has increased by $800,000 its television ad campaign in Kentucky aimed at holding Senate Minority Leader 
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) accountable for using his "clout" to help donors and special interests, not his constituents. 

The group's ad, available online at http://www.bigmoneymitch.com, will now air in virtually every media market in 
the Commonwealth. 

"Mitch McConnell has made a long career out of blocking and obstructing legislation in Washington, but he is known 
principally for his radical opposition to all campaign finance reform and his love of special interest fundraising," said David 
Donnelly, Campaign Money Watch's director. "Now he's telling Kentuckians that he has clout and power. It's fair to ask, as 
our ad does, who does he use the clout for?" 

Last week, Campaign Money Watch announced a $385,000 purchase of airtime in three markets - Lexington, 
Louisville and northern Kentucky. This week's additional buy brings the group's spending to $1,185,000 across broadcast 
and cable in seven media markets. 

"McConnell wanted a debate on his own clout and now he's got one," Donnelly said. "I think Mitch McConnell, in 
talking about his power in the Senate, is the only politician in America who is running with Washington, not against it." 

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's opposition to campaign finance reform and public financing of 
elections is well documented. He led filibusters against campaign finance reform throughout the late 1990s. McConnell 
threatened business leaders who supported reform with implied legislative retribution. He sued the federal government - 
and lost - over the McCain-Feingold law. In June 2007, McConnell testified before his own Senate Rules Committee in 
opposition to the bipartisan Fair Elections Now Act, a bill to make public money available to candidates who agree to 
spending limits. 

Campaign Money Watch has a successful history of holding politicians accountable who oppose reform. The group 
led the effort to drive indicted former Majority Leader Tom DeLay from office, as well as conducted a voter education effort 
in Ralph Reed's primary race for lieutenant governor in Georgia. Campaign Money Watch is a project of Public Campaign 
Action Fund.

Subject: Re: Hillary Clinton Favorable Rating - Polls - HuffPost Pollster 


John, the one point I would emphasize that is time sensitive is that on the trade bill 
vote in the Senate, my advice would be she say she would vote no now and vote no 
until there is a significant jobs bill tied to it, similar to the big infrastructure bill I 
suggested in my last column be tied to the trade bill.. ..not merely fast-track tied to 
a trade adjustment bill that itself is insufficient 

What I predict is most likely is that Obama wins fast track with his deal with 
Republicans and conservative Dems, tied to a lame TAA, with the net result is that 
liberals and labor are engaged and that HRC supports this package would be a big 
mistake IMO 

Obama could easily sink her, on this and other matters and sink down ballot 

Democrats.... if we must do fast track, which I am not a big fan of in principle, there 
is no reason it cannot be tied to a big infrastructure jobs bill which many Republicans 
and business leaders support 

What Obama did was inflame the GOP base in large numbers through no fault of his own.. ..but depress 

enough Democrats to not vote. ..which was totally his fault and 

many on his staff.. ..HRC will have the same inflammatory affect on the Republican 

base to vote. ..through no fault of her own but what she can control to a large 

degree is whether she motivates our base or whether she calls herself a fighter 
but many in our base conclude she is not 

My fear is she has a low standard of what will satisfy her on trade.. ..which will make 
her look, and be, Obama 2.0 on trade in the end at the very moment when a lot of 
liberals.. ..myself included were appalled by his insults of liberals on trade 

Fast track plus weak TAA is a loser for her, but I suspect that is where she ends up, 
add a significant infrastructure jobs plan, that is the winner, and IMO that should be 

her price for supporting it, or something similar and if it were my call she would 

tell Obama that personally and if he doesn't get a better deal, just say no having 
made the fight Brent

Brent, 

We are of course aware of the numbers and the trend lines. And we are not complacent. And I put our 
consultants in that we. The question remains what do you do about that given the certainty that the 
Republicans (and to some extent the media) will continue to hammer away at "trust". My own view is that 
her history, values, vision and agenda can blunt the attacks and convince people from the center to the left 
that the one thing you can trust is that she will be a tenacious fighter for everyday Americans and the 
middle class. And you can trust the Republicans to fix the system for the people at the top. Moreover, she 
has the strength to not only wage those fights, but to win them. So I think we need to stay strategically 
focused on proving that. 

Two things I disagree with you about: 

1) unlike perhaps the current occupant, she very much sees down ballot and broad geographic success for

Democrats as critical. 

2) Her trade position has nothing to do with donors and Wall Street. She's stated her criteria for TPP, but 
hasn't ruled out the possibility that that criteria can be met in a final deal. Her position in that regard is not 
that dissimilar to Pelosi's. That might not be that satisfying, but it's what she thinks.

Q&A. pdf 


Hi Everyone, 

As some of you may have seen, Secretary Clinton did a press conference today where she talked why she was 
there today, commented on recent developments regarding Iran, and about all the recent issues surrounding her 
email at the State Department, so we wanted to follow up with a transcript of her statement along with a Q&A 
document that lays out many of the questions that have been raised in the last week along with the answers to 
them. 

Please be in touch with any questions or comments.

Thanks Ann. I'm just going to do this, if you/Research are ok with it: 

Families are stretched in a million directions. So are their budgets. Costs keep rising but most people’s paychecks haven’t 
moved in years - but corporate profits and CEO pay keep rising. Quality childcare costs more than college tuition in many 
states. The minimum wage is a poverty wage. Millions of Americans are held back by student debt. And at a time when 
more women than ever are their family’s main bread winner, too often, they still don’t get equal pay. Women of color 
earn least of all. And just yesterday, the Department of Labor released new data showing that, as our economy gets 
stronger, men’s pay is going up more than twice as fast than women’s pay.

Two things: 

(1) Apparently, DOL did release interesting pay disparity numbers today. See this WSJ piece . I think it 
would be good to add a line that says, "Yesterday, the US Department of Labor released new data showing 
that our economy is getting stronger, but that increases in pay for men and women are not growing at the 
same rate. Men who work full-time saw their pay increase at more than double the rate of women. With more 
than 2/3rds of our families relying on the income of women to keep their families afloat, this unequal pay 
growth hurts women, our families and our economy. Equal pay must be a priority if we are going to have a 
strong economy and strong families." 

(2) For the Paul Ryan paragraph, instead of "flexibility," I'd focus that he was asking for a fair and 
predictable schedule - something that our low-wage workers are desperate to get. So change to: 

Paid family leave; schedules that are fair and predictable; higher wages so you don’t have to work two jobs to make 
ends meet, so you can be home at night with your kids — these aren’t just challenges for women, they’re challenges for 
America.

Subject: [big campaign] Today's 'Cost of War Receipt' to the American People: Freefall on Wall Street 


BANK OF U.S. TAXPAYERS 

RECEIPT 




DATE: September 16th, 2008 
Purchases : 

Item: Costly, Mismanaged, Endless War in Iraq 

Quantity: 1 


Today's Tack On to the 'Cost of War' - 
500 Point Freefall in Dow Jones 

To offset the depressive effect of massive spending on Iraq, the Fed 
flooded the economy with liquidity and regulators, turned a blind eye to 
extremely risky lending, according to Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph 
Stiglitz. The result is the credit crunch, the collapse of major financial 
institutions and a 500 point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average - 
the biggest one-day decline since trading resumed after the 9/11 attacks. 

From Joseph Stiglitz' s March 9, 2008 column, "The Iraq War Will Cost Us 
$3 Trillion, and Much More:" 

Until recently , many marveled at the way the United States could spend 
hundreds of billions of dollars on oil and blow through hundreds of 
billions more in Iraq with what seemed to be strikingly little short-run 
impact on the economy. But there's no great mystery here. The economy's 
weaknesses were concealed by the Federal Reserve , which pumped in 
liquidity , and by regulators that looked away as loans were handed out 
well beyond borrowers' ability to repay them. Meanwhile , banks and credit- 
rating agencies pretended that financial alchemy could convert bad 
mortgages into AAA assets , and the Fed looked the other way as the U.S. 
household-savings rate plummeted to zero. 

Original Iraq War Purchase Price : 

"The administration's top budget official [Mitch Daniels] estimated today 
that the cost of a war with Iraq could be in the range of $50 billion to 
$60 billion." -- New York Times, 2/2/03 

"The oil revenues of Iraq could bring between $50 and $100 billion over 
the course of the next two or three years. We're dealing with a country 
that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon." - 
Former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz [Congressional 
Testimony, 3/27/03 ] 

" [F] rom the standpoint of the Iraqi people, my belief is we will, in fact, 
be greeted as liberators." - Vice-President Dick Cheney [Meet the Press, 
3/16/2003 ] 

Current Iraq War Price Tag:

now go far beyond loose mortgage lending. You can't spend $3 trillion — 
yes, $3 trillion — on a failed war abroad and not feel the pain at home. 
— Joseph E. Stiglitz. Nobel Prize Winning Economist and professor at 
Columbia University 


Additional Costs: 

• Over 4,100 American lives lost and rising as U.S. troops remain in the 
crossfire of daily Iraqi civil, religious, sectarian violence with no end 
in sight 

• Eye off the ball of the real 'central front' against terrorism in 
Afghanistan 

• Less safe with U.S. military stretched dangerously thin 

• Shortchanged priorities here at home, from education to healthcare for 
children and veterans, while trillions of dollars spent in Iraq 

• Economy in shambles as massive financial drain of war exacerbates the 
credit crisis 

• Skyrocketing gas prices due to instability in the Middle East 

• Less prepared to respond to emergencies and disasters at home with 
National Guard resources bogged down in Iraq 

• Underfunded veterans healthcare system overwhelmed with incoming 
injured, maimed, and veterans suffering from PTSD 

• Military families torn apart

studies or statistics that underscore the incredible sacrifices our nation is making every day by staying the course with the failed Bush-McCain '100 years or 

more' war policy in Iraq.

Subject: Drugs and Terror Monster Conjugated Aggravation in the Middle East 


SALVATION OF MANKIND BY NARCOTIC VEGETATION ERADICATION FROM THE AIR BY UNMANNED 

AIRCRAFT VEHICLES 


Mr. President, 


Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles 

Development proved being capable of hitting even point targets. It is well known that Afghanistan has World record of 
Poppy Opium Production of about 200 tons annually yielded from a cultivated 157,000 hectares area. That enormous dope 
amount (90% of world opium production) is in my opinion the main financial source for Terror Organizations' Weaponry 
Acquisition. According to my assessment, UAV could have been Redemption for Entire Mankind if being utilized as follows: 
2,4 D Defoliant is splashed on the Narcotic Vegetation causing its Desertification within several days inevitably. The 
following favorable consequences might have been anticipated: 

1) Severing of Terror Organizations from their Financial Source that dry up with 
Narcotic Vegetation Desertification 

2) Salvation of millions of Potential Drug Addicts from Awful Agony and Death 

3) Rehabilitation of US Deterrence that has weakened considerably after Nine Eleven 
Horrendousness 

4) Precipitation of NATO Troops Evacuation from Afghanistan as a result of UAV 
Bombardment Intensification resulting in Terror Suppression Reinforcement 

5) Deterrence of El-Qaida Reactivation by leaving a Souvenir of dry Poppy-Opium 
Bushes from pulling out NATO Troops 

6) I suggest having a Debate in the Senate that might hopefully lead to successful termination of the Afghan War after being 
stuck in its Marsh for 12 long years 

7) Waiting for your Response as US friend since 1948 

8) There could not have been any doubt about terminating the Armed Conflict in Afghanistan Honorably averting an 
Ignominious ending up as currently impending. 

9) Similarly, Central American Dope Smuggling could have been drastically diminished by UAV Utilization for Narcotic 
Vegetation Eradication Grown on 

Mountainous Gradients. Very large amounts of Dope are smuggled annually into the 
US having found hitherto no efficacious way of overcoming that calamity 

10) Please contact me by scheduling a meeting at US Embassy in Tel -Aviv for Clarifications with your experts' participation 
specializing in Explosives, Electronics and Aviation 

11) 1 have got all the required specifications for getting mankind be extricated from the two conjugated calamities, Drugs 
inundation and Terror attacks of Innocent Population thanks to UAV activities. 

12) To my great astonishment, my correspondence versus US Senate Committee on Armed Services has been irresponsive 
despite the extraordinary importance for entire 

Civilization Meanwhile as many as one billion of Muslims are threatening America encouraged by their Nine Eleven 
Precedent Success 

13) In reminiscence, as many as 50,000 Aircraft were ordered according to Presidents' Roosevelt Ordinance after the 
Japanese Attack of Pearl Harbor while 

7000 UAV by comparison are being idled in Storage letting the Afghan Anned Conflict be continued indefinitely. 

14) Please let me explicate for US Air-Force an efficacious way emerging victorious from Afghan Entanglement in favor of 
Entire Mankind instead of suffering an ignominious defeat. 

15) To my great surprise, US Does not exercise its Self Defense Right according to UN Charter Chapter 51 (1946), enabling 
Criminal Organizations of Third World Countries attacking it with impunity. Nine Eleven Catastrophe could have been 
averted if the US had utilized its complete Arsenal particularly UAV in high numbers instead of being kept idle in Magazines. 

16) I propose meeting your Experts for UAV, Explosives and Electronics at US Embassy in Tel Aviv for thorough debate 
about Dual Headed Monster Decapitation in favor of beleaguered Mankind believing in great success of my Innovative 
Unprecedented Method as an only feasible efficacious expedient against it. 

17) Is White House Correspondence Team busy to such an extent being unable responding even most important letters?

18) To my great Astonishment Dereliction of US Air Force results in smuggling of 
Tremendous Dope Amount from Central America via Mexico into the US with its 
Awful damage for many millions American's Health 

19) I don't see any reason for hesitancy! The President may issue tomorrow an ordinance in order to open emergency 
Magazines, getting ten thousands of UAV 

Aloft in order to achieve Narcotic Vegetation Desertification with achievement for 
Posterity 

20) Emerge preferably with an Upper hand honorably instead of being ignominiously defeated! 

21) Despite being Non US Citizen I think to have done my best in assisting ending up 

Afghan War victoriously thanks to my Innovative Narcotic Vegetation Eradication Method, however not a single word 
of Acknowledgement has hitherto 

Reached my mailbox! In my opinion, Disparagement and Ungratefulness are conjugated at least according to my feeling! 

22) There could not have been any justification keeping as many as 7000 UAV unused in magazines instead of operating 
them against Nine Eleven Cruel enemy. Moreover, US taxpayers have already paid for that arsenal! 

23) I believe Mr. Attorney General that Narcotic Vegetation Desertification Utilizing UAV is the only Feasible way of getting 
Mankind been extricated from the Doubling Stricken Menace Grabbing, Drug and Terror Simultaneously. 

24) November election is going to be beginning of President Obama last Congress Tenure working with but if the President 
is being able Indicating Monumental achievements. He might have been eligible into the Parlor of great Leaders having 
annihilated Drugs and Terror calamities for Posterity affluence 

25) Wiping out Narcotic Vegetation and launching consequently an Overwhelming 

Strike on Terror Organizations by UAV Utilization might have been an Unprecedented Achievement of Entire Mankind and 
President Obama personally. 

26) Incredibly, no reaction has come from the White House in latest four years despite 
My pure intention for assistance for the US as well as Entire Civilization! 

27) In my opinion Nobel Institute might have contributed to a very great extent to Drug and Terror Monster Decapitation in 
favor of Entire Civilization. 

28) Prime Minister of Israel might have contributed a great role in exerting an influence on US and Western Governments in 
General in a Universal Effort of Dual Headed Monster, Drugs and Terror simultaneous eradication 

Be successful 

Gideon Rodeh 

There is no justification losing an Election Campaign Ignominiously instead of emerging Victorious honorably! The 
Democrats should have mobilized the entire US Media attacking the Republican for an Exploitation of US Contingency to 
vote against their own Interests in favor of big Oil Corporations! Such incessant Transmissions would have been a very 
efficacious Deterrence for most Democratic families to abstain from voting against their own Interests! 

Be successful 

Gideon Rodeh

Dear John, 

I wish to thank you for your participation in the discussion with Cardinal Rodriguez on Monday, November 2 at Georgetown Law Center Hart 
Auditorium. We are delighted and honored that you will be a part of this timely and important discussion. I am following up on your communication 
with Peter Byrne. This email includes information on the program, logistics and related matter. Here is how we have been describing the discussion: 


Pope Francis' Environmental Encyclical: Protecting the Planet and the Poor 
A Conversation with Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez 


Monday, November 2, 4:00 to 5:30 pm 
Hart Auditorium 
Georgetown Law Center 


Purpose and Focus: 

Pope Francis' environmental encyclical Laudato Si makes a powerful moral case for the dual obligation to care for creation and care for the poor. 
Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez is a key advisor to Pope Francis, chair of his Council of Cardinals. As the first cardinal from Honduras, he knows 
firsthand the damaging human impact from environmental degradation and leads the church’s efforts to defend the life and dignity of the poor. 


Discussants : 

Following the conversation with Cardinal Rodriguez, which will be moderated by John Carr, director of Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and 
Public Life, members of Georgetown Law Center will respond. 


• Edith Brown Weiss, Francis Cabell Brown Professor of International Law, member of United Nations Environment Programme's International 
Advisory Council on Environmental Justice. 

• John Podesta, Distinguished Visitor from Practice, former Counselor to President Barack Obama on climate change and energy policy. 
Background Information : 

Cardinal Rodriguez will not be giving a formal presentation, but will be responding to series of questions from me as moderator. I will send you some 
preliminary questions I plan to raise with him on the topic. I included a link to a video that was shot at Georgetown University featuring Cardinal 
Rodriguez discussing Pope Francis' views on climate change and environmental issues. This indicates some of the tone and content of his likely 
responses and may be useful for you as you prepare your remarks. https://www.voutube.com/watch?v=QLVdvLPeSKA

Since it may be difficult to anticipate how best to respond to Cardinal Rodriguez, I suggest you might focus your 10-12 minute reflection on your 
response to the Encyclical . What are its most important messages? Given your experience, what are its potential impacts? 


Request : 

I will be introducing you and Edith Weiss. Please send me information on what you'd like to be emphasized in a brief, relatively informal introduction. 
What parts of your work, affiliations, education, family do you wish me to lift up as I introduce you?

Hello Hillary, 

As you put your team together, in my view the two best Colorado political consultants are Mike Melansen 
and Alan Salazar. They both were architects of Governor Hickenlooper's recent win, and have huge 
experience in U.S. Senate and Governor's races, as well as supporting roles in Presidential ones. 

Also, you should meet Al Yates-African American, PhD in theoretical physics, former President of 
Colorado State University, founder of the Democracy Alliance, and ....the list goes on. He singlehandedly 
has in his head the data analytics of the last ten years in Colorado (funded with huge resources) 
including the explanation of why Mark Udall lost and John Hickenlooper won. I always won Colorado 
because of him. I would like to arrange a time with him and you/ and your team as we get started. 

I know there are many good people in Colorado who would want to help, will help, and are seeking roles 
or have had roles with you or the President in the past. The three I mention above have no agenda, are 
smart, humble and effective. In my view, the team you put together in Colorado will be the keystone of 
your victory here. So please be cautious and on target. I am available to you or your team whenever you 
want. 

All the best, 

Ken Salazar

My dear friend and colleague Hilary, 

I so enjoyed our meeting today. I am all in because I know you, believe in you, and share your 
values. 

I will help you as much as I can. Specifically, I would offer to (1 ) host your first fundraiser in 
Colorado at Hope's and my home (my Mom might even make it if she can); (2) help identify the key 
elected leaders in Colorado like Representative Crisanta Duran and Mayor Hancock of Denver and 
host a meeting with you and them; (3) help identify the right political talent in Colorado; and (4) help 
as needed across the nation. 

You are the best. Cesar Chavez prayed "give me the courage to serve others because in service 
there is true life." You have done so in your words and deeds and I look forward to your next 
chapter of service. 

All the best, 

Ken Salazar

Good afternoon, 

We here at Progressive Accountability are pleased to announce our latest video, this one called "29 Guesses," 
and it's an attempt to hammer John McCain on a topic that has great potential to kill us in the fall, his position on 
drilling off-shore to supposedly lower gas prices. We're fighting back hard on this, and this is our first video 
attempt to nail him on being in the pocket of Big Oil. 

You can find it here ( http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=SkUj9EI IN Is ) and through our YouTube channel here 
( http://www.youtube.com/user/ProgAccountability ). 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Is the Obama stuff contained somewhere in there? 

I really believe this was heavily in her head during the last debate and was very unhelpful to her delivering 
strong answers - it's like she felt boxed in. Presumably the answers Jake articulated well tonight are in her Q 
and A for tomorrow and this is evolving - so maybe we can hold off. But I would heavily mock the "you and 
Obama created an enormous mess" line of questions that includes aren't his plans weak/passive/defeatist/tone

3. Health Care - replace p. 56 ONLY w update on Colorado answer 

4. Gun Violence - replace entire section pp 106-1 1 1 - add new attacks from strategy memo; add answer

5. ISIS: pull existing pages 130-137 and replace with new pages, updated with “new” HRC plan to fight ISIS 
abroad and at home, and with post-SanB frame. This is the most important update.

When you mentioned the mayor, when I was 20 years old I worked for John Lindsay first in the 1972 Florida 
primary and then in NY. The short version is that the Lindsay people had me run a city council campaign in 
Woodside, Queens. While I was just a kid, suffice it to say that both the Italian and Irish mafia guys had an 
interest in the campaign on different sides. If we ever have a beer I will have you on the floor laughing about 
when they made my acquaintance because they didn't like what I was doing.... 

Key point here. ...I guarantee there is no way that the Trumps were doing real estate deals in Queens and 
Brooklyn in the 1970's without doing serious business with some very unsavory characters. No way. I am

The Federal Reserves readiness is at stake 


I 



The United States Supreme Court glistens in the Washington, D.C. sun. 

By Jorge Vilches 

Guest Columnist 

Judge Griesas impact upon CDS, derivatives, and sovereign bond markets 

In order to avoid a new default in less than three weeks, Argentina and all of the holdouts must reach an agreement that is 
acceptable to every restructured bondholder of Argentine debt and Judge Thomas Griesa. 

Otherwise, some of the possible outcomes include: 

(1) An international cascade of competing legal claims involving many other sovereign defaults besides Argentinas 
And/or... 

(2) A pseudo-Lehman Brothers CDS and derivatives scenario, possibly with new 2008-type bail-outs 
And/or...

Page 382 

(3) Deepening of the current de-dollarization of international finances, with markets, governments and the Federal Reserve 
befuddled and dysfunctional as in the 2008 limbo. 

The setting 

The glaring absence of internationally acknowledged legislation on sovereign bankruptcy to abide by forced common sense 
to prevail without the need for judicial intervention. Thus, the largest nation state default in history was successfully left 
behind, and by 2015, Argentina was expected to return to international credit markets after 13 years of ostracism. 

Nobel Prize laureate Paul Krugman, in a front-page high-impact 2012 New York Times piece, praised Argentinas remarkable 
success story. Many other world-renowned authorities agreed that the decades-long conundrum of debt traps had finally 
been solved, with implications of genuine growth. 

Enter the US Judiciary and Vulture Funds 

The US judiciary decided to treat a sovereign debt default as if it were a run-of-the-mill New York business bankruptcy. The 
minuscule (1.6 percent) albeit horribly powerful holdout vulture funds had taken advantage of the occasion to implement 
their cunning and fully vetted business model based on the purchase of defaulted Argentine debt that was handed over at dirt 
cheap prices. 

This utterly suspicious class of plaintiffs had simultaneously engaged in swift and handsomely expensive lobbying. 

Finally, they gained heavy-weight legal support, manifest namely in very curious US judiciary rulings in disdain of the very 
nature of a sovereign debt default. 

Judiciary overreach 

Now, circumstances are pushing financial momentum for a brand new Argentine default with as of yet unfathomable un- 
intended consequences, including multi-multi-billion arithmetically unpayable new claims worldwide as the decisions of the 
US judiciary decisions would be taken as precedent. 

The problem is that such sanctions were imposed on a nation state without internationally-acknowledged sovereign 
bankruptcy rules to back them up. As per sovereign immunity (something to which nation states cannot waiver) and also 
by definition, sovereign debt is unenforceable. The patient has died, and no miracle drug can revive the corpse. Debtors 
may have rights, but not remedies. US law, judges, and a special master do not apply to nation states. Judge Griesas pari 
passu interpretation has been hotly and widely contested worldwide, even in the US. 

As a matter of fact, Judge Griesas own moaning for months along these lines is on record. The US Judiciary has 
overstepped the mark of common sense and violated several important clauses of the delicate, unwritten code that rules 
amicable foreign relations. The US judiciary should not establish US foreign policy, nor is it a world court. As per Justice 
Ruth Bader Ginsburgs dissent, the Supreme Court should not exorbitantly approve vulture funds direct access to US 
listings of Argentinas seizable assets worldwide. 

Eyes wide shut 

Obviously, in view of the default that is being actively pursued, financial terrorists worldwide may now surely join the party 
by filing additional multi-billion claims through CDS Credit Default Swaps. 

As the IMF is painfully aware, all of the above is bound to fuel a worldwide cascade of competing legal claims from 
vulture funds, plus restructured sovereign bond creditors and CDS holders, all of which would severely affect counterparties 
and possibly trigger systemic events that were absolutely unimaginable only a week ago. 

Its worth mentioning that CDS counterparty risk is concentrated in only ten ultra-highly leveraged too-big-to-fail banks, 
which may have to be bailed out yet again depending upon how events unfold. 

Thus, the international financial system could needlessly find itself running around in circles, clueless and deeply submerged 
in a J.K. Galbraith type of Age of Uncertainty. 

The question is whether the Fed is ready for any of this.

[big campaign] New Huff Post from Creamer - Growing Economic Inequality Root Cause of 
Economic Stagnation 

Attachments: 

PastedGraphic-5.pdf 


Growing Economic Inequality the Root Cause of Economic Stagnation 

Last Friday’s jobs numbers showed a net growth of only 1 8,000 new jobs nationwide - while the economy 
must produce 150,000 jobs each month just to absorb population growth. Clearly the economic recovery has 
stalled and Republicans are pointing to the slowdown as evidence that American economic policy must once 
again turn sharply to the right. 

Trouble is, rather than being a solution to our country’s economic woes, the growing economic inequality 
their policies have caused was the root cause of the 2008 economic collapse and the economic stagnation that 
America has experienced since. That burgeoning economic inequality must end if we are to restore the 
American middle class - and give our children an opportunity for a prosperous future. 

The chief characteristic of private sector economic activity is that it is incredibly responsive to consumer 
demand. At its best, that’s what makes it such an innovative, efficient and powerful engine of economic growth. 
If private sector entrepreneurs and businesses can identify even a glimmer of consumer demand for some new 
product or service, someone will figure out how to provide it. But there’s a hitch. The consumers who want the 
product or service need to have the money to pay for it. 

So the private sector’s greatest strength is also potentially its greatest weakness - its Achilles Heel. If, for 
whatever reason, consumers as a group don’t have the money to buy a growing number of products and 
services, the private sector economy will stagnate. 

Right now there are plenty of people out there who desperately need all sorts of products and services that 
they don’t have the money to buy. The problem isn’t that businesses don’t have the capital to meet the 
demand. Corporations are sitting on almost two trillion dollars in cash. They are looking for somewhere to 
deploy that money where it can earn them a return - where consumers have the money to buy some new 
product or service. 

The problem is that there aren’t enough consumers with money in their pockets. 

But that is not simply a problem that has resulted from the financial crash and subsequent loss of eight 
million jobs. This problem has been developing for many years. 

The bottom line is that most of the considerable economic growth of the last several decades has gone into 
the pockets of a tiny percent of the population. As a result, wages and consumer buying power have stagnated, 
and consumers don’t have the money to buy the new products and services upon which economic growth 
depends. 

This generates a vicious cycle - laid-off workers, lower wages, less consumer demand, less economic growth 
and so on. 

You can’t fundamentally break this cycle without addressing the root cause - the increased concentration of 
wealth that is strangling economic growth and destroying the American middle class upon which long-term 
economic growth completely depends. 

Let’s look at this process in a little more detail.

The incomes of the middle class Americans, and those who aspire to be middle class - 90% of Americans -- 
have been stagnant for almost three decades. This trend, which was briefly interrupted during the Clinton 
Administration, is the chief defining characteristic of our recent economic history. 

The stagnation of middle class incomes has not happened because our economy has failed to grow over this 
period. In fact, real (adjusted for inflation) per capita gross domestic product (GDP) increased more than 80% 
over the period between 1975 and 2005. In the last ten years, before the Great Recession, it increased at an 
average rate of 1 .8% per year. That means that if the benefits of economic growth were equally spread 
throughout our society, everyone should have been almost 20% better off (with compounding) in 2008 than they 
were in 1998. 

But they weren’t better off. In fact, median family income actually dropped in the years before the recession. 

It went from $52,301 (in 2009 dollars) in 2000 to $50,1 12 in 2008. And, of course it continued to drop as the 
recession set in. 

How is that possible? 

Was it - as the Right likes to believe - because of the growth of the Federal Government? Nope. In fact, the 
percentage of GDP going to federal spending actually dropped during the last four years of the Clinton 
Administration. When Bush took office it began to increase again as the Republicans increased spending on 
wars. Over the last 28 years, federal spending has averaged about 20.9% of the GDP and varied within a range 
of only about 5%, with the high being in 1983 (in the middle of the Reagan years) and the low in 2000 before 
Bush took office. It has never even come close to the 43.6% of GDP that it consumed during World War II in 
1943 and 1944, or the 41 .9% it consumed in 1945. The percent of GDP that goes to Federal spending went up 
in 2009 and 2010 - but that was mainly because the economy shrunk on the one hand, and a major, temporary 
stimulus bill was need on the other to prevent another Great Depression. 

Was it because taxes have skyrocketed? No again. In fact, according to the Census Bureau, the median 
household tax burden actually dropped from 24.9% in 2000 to 22.4% in 2009. 

Was it that labor became less productive? No. In fact, there has been a major gap between the increase in 
the productivity of our workforce and the increase in their wages. Even when wages were improving at the end 
of the Clinton years, productivity went up 2.5% per year and median hourly wages went up only 1 .5%. 

From 2000 to 2004, worker productivity exploded by an annual rate of 3.8% but hourly wages went up only 
1% and median family income actually dropped .9%. 

The bottom line is that people who work for a living (most of us) are getting a smaller and smaller slice of the 
nation’s economic pie. 

In August of 2006, the New York Times reported that a Federal Reserve study showed that “(w)ages and 
salaries now make up the lowest share of the nation’s gross national product since the government began 
recording data in 1947; while corporate profits have climbed to their highest shares since the 1960’s.” 

So the answer to the question is simple. Virtually all of the increase in our gross domestic product over the 
ten years before the Great Recession went to the wealthiest 2% of the population. 

These changes in income distribution are not the result of “natural laws.” They are the result of systems set 
up by human beings that differentially benefit different groups in the society. 

Economist Paul Krugman has summarized the history of income distribution in America. 

At the beginning of the Great Depression, income inequality, and inequality in the control of wealth, was very 
high. Then came the great compression between 1929 and 1947. Real wages for workers in manufacturing 
rose 67% while real income for the richest 1 % of Americans fell 1 7%. This period marked the birth of the 
American middle class. Two major forces drove these trends - unionization of major manufacturing sectors, and 
the public policies of the New Deal.

Page 386 


Then came the postwar boom, 1947 to 1973. Real wages rose 81% and the income of the richest 1% rose 
38%. Growth was widely shared, but income inequality continued to drop. 

From 1973 to 1980, everyone lost ground. Real wages fell 3% and income for the richest one percent fell 
4%. The oil shocks, and the dramatic slowdown in economic growth in developing nations, took their toll on 
America and the world economy. 

Then came what Krugman calls “the New Gilded Age.” Beginning in 1980, there were big gains at the very 
top. The tax policies of the Reagan administration magnified income redistribution. Between 1980 and 2004, 
real wages in manufacturing fell 1%, while real income of the richest one percent rose 135%. 

The single largest contributor to this stagnation of middle class incomes has been the corporate attack on 
organized labor. The percentage of private sector workers in unions has shrunk from 35 % to 7%. The 
exception has been the public sector, where 35% of teachers, firemen and public service workers now have 
access to collective bargaining. 

What is the economic effect of this growing inequity? 

Economies are in balance if productivity gains result in commensurately higher salaries for employees that 
allow them to buy the larger number of products and services that those productivity increases allow 
corporations to manufacture and sell. If they don’t have increased buying power - if all of the income growth 
goes to the top 2% -- then a demand deficit will inevitably develop that will lead to stagnation, recession - or 
depression. That gap in buying power can be filled for a while - as it was in the early 2000’s - with greater 
consumer debt. But after a while the bubble bursts and the house of cards comes tumbling down. 

And of course this isn’t all about cold economic theory. Growing economic inequality directly impacts million 
of lives and destroys millions of dreams. It’s not just about economic policy. It’s about right and wrong. 

The growing inequality can be seen in the explosion of the ratio of average worker salaries and the 
compensation paid to corporate CEO’s. In 1980 the average CEO made 42 times more than the average 
worker. Today he (or sometimes she) makes 262 times as much as the average worker. 

New numbers just came out showing that CEO pay last year skyrocketed by a whopping 23%. The new top 
earning CEO is Gregory Maffei of Liberty Media Corporation who was compensated $87,493,565 for his 
services. That’s about $42,064 per hour. 

Of course that’s nothing compared to hedge fund manager John Paulson. According the Wall Street Journal 
he made $5 billion last year. That’s $2.4 million dollars an hour - or $40,064 per minute. So Mr. Paulson made 
as much as a minimum wage worker every 23 seconds. Note also that Mr. Paulson and all hedge fund 
managers paid Federal taxes at only 15% instead of the 35% due to a special tax break. 

What do people like Mr. Paulson and Mr. Maffei do with their massive incomes? Like many executives they 
might choose to purchase a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date Watch for about $8,000. 

You might remember that many of the CEO class have spent a good deal of time lately telling America that we 
have to trim back Social Security benefits. The average Social Security benefit for retirees is the princely sum of 
$14,160 per year - $38.79 per day (for all 365 days per year). 

It would take the average beneficiary 206 days of benefits to pay for that Rolex watch. It would take Mr. 
Maffei 1 1 .4 minutes of his compensation. 

In order to generate new jobs and get the economy moving over the long haul, America needs to assure that 
everyday Americans receive the fruits of productivity growth. Otherwise our economy will continue to stagnate. 
That means more unionization, trade and tax policies that encourage higher wages, and right now it requires a 
massive jobs program to put America back to work.

The Republican notion that we can’t burden the “job creators” like Maffei or Paulson with new taxes is 
mortally dangerous for our economy and our future. Just the opposite is true. The “job creators” are the 
everyday consumers that have to have money in their pockets to create the demand to make our economy 
grow. 

But this is not just bad economics. It’s morally wrong. 

The idea of asking Social Security recipients or people on Medicare or Medicaid to sacrifice a part of their 
meager income to assure that people like Gregory Maffei can afford to buy a new Rolex watch every 1 1 minutes 
- or get a taxpayer subsidy to ride in a corporate jet - is simply obscene. 

The outcome of the current budget debate can be judged by only one central criteria. What will a budget deal 
do to create new jobs and get the economy moving again? That is not mainly about giving “confidence” to the 
markets or cutting the ratio of long-term debt to GDP. To truly address the root problems of our economy, a 
budget deal must help increase the incomes of the middle class and reduce the swelling economic inequality that 
is a cancer growing on our society and our economy. 

You don’t do that by cutting Social Security or Medicare benefits -- or by slashing Medicaid as the 
Republicans proposed. You do it, as President Obama has proposed, by asking the new economic aristocracy 
to dip into their vast stores of wealth and help pay their fair share for the society from which they have so richly 
benefited.

Sunday, May 16, 2010 

We commend The Post for initiating a forum on polarization, which is indeed the dominant political phenomenon 
of our time. Consider that for the first time in modern history, in both the House and the Senate, the most 
conservative Democrat is slightly more liberal than the most liberal Republican. This is more than an interesting 
scholarly finding; it has consequences for the legislative process. The most conservative Senate Democrat (Ben 
Nelson) ended up supporting health reform; the most liberal Republican (Olympia Snowe) ended up opposing it. 
For decades, the operational core of bipartisanship in Congress was the overlap between the parties. Through 
a long process triggered by the politics of the 1960s, that core has disappeared. 

Polarization is not confined to elected officials and political elites. While the American people are not as divided 
as the parties are, they are more divided than they were a generation ago. As Emory University's Alan 
Abramowitz notes in his new book, "The Disappearing Center," the percentage of the electorate that places itself 
at or near the ideological midpoint of American politics has shrunk from 41 to 28 percent since the mid-1 980s, 
while the left and right extremes have expanded. 

In addition, because people increasingly prefer to live near others who share their cultural and political 
preferences, they are voting with their feet and sorting themselves geographically. Many more states and 
counties are dominated by one-party supermajorities than in the past. Contrary to widespread belief, reducing 
the gerrymandering of congressional districts would make only a small dent in the problem. And unfortunately, 
homogeneous groups tend to reinforce and purify the views that bring them together: Sorting not only reflects 
polarization but also intensifies it. 

What The Post's editorial missed, however, is that these developments have not produced two mirror-image 
political parties. We have, instead, asymmetrical polarization. Put simply: More than 70 percent of Republicans in 
the electorate identify themselves as conservative or very conservative, while only 40 percent of rank-and-file 
Democrats call themselves liberal or very liberal. It is far easier for congressional Republicans to forge and 
maintain a united front than it is for Democrats. George W. Bush pushed through his signature tax cuts and Iraq 
war authorization with substantial Democratic support, while unwavering Republican opposition nearly 
torpedoed Barack Obama's health-reform legislation. When Democrats are in the majority, their greater 
ideological diversity combined with the unified opposition of Republicans induces the party to negotiate within its 
ranks, producing policies that not long ago would have attracted the support of a dozen Senate Republicans, 
adjcon

Consider the episode that The Post cited as Exhibit A for polarization: Sen. Robert Bennett's commendable work 
with Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden to develop a bipartisan health bill, which was used against him by 
conservative Utah activists to deny him renomination. The Post failed to note, however, that Senate Republican 
leader Mitch McConnell pulled the plug on the Wyden-Bennett initiative well before health reform was taken up 
last year. 

Bennett and other Republican co-sponsors of this bipartisan bill were told in no uncertain terms that the party 
strategy was to block every major domestic policy initiative of the new administration and not to engage in 
substantive negotiations that could produce bipartisan majorities on the floor. During the lengthy health debate, 
not one Senate Republican spoke in support of the Wyden-Bennett bill. Tea Party activists outraged at 
Republican incumbents for cavorting with the enemy (i.e., Obama and the Democrats) took their cue from 
Republican Party leaders. 

Under these conditions of asymmetrical polarization, Congress can become a haven for obstruction and gridlock 
rather than deliberation and compromise. David Price, an 11-term North Carolina Democrat and distinguished 
political scientist, has just published a frank account of the reasons that led Democrats leaders to abandon their 
hopes of reinstating more open, less restrictive rules of procedure in the House. His essay is required reading 
for those who want to understand the ground-level dynamics of polarization in action. 

This is not to say that Congress is prevented from acting in a less purely partisan manner. When a supermajority 
of people, of any partisan stripe, wants something to happen -- financial regulatory reform, for example -- 
chances are good that it will. But when the people are divided, the most strident voices tend to dominate, and 
Congress reverts to the all-too-familiar pattern of behavior that has driven its public esteem to a record low. And 
a Republican Party dominated at the grass roots by angry rejection of all bipartisanship -- and of all but the most 
limited government -- may win support in the short term, but it will be hard put to cooperate productively in the 
serious tasks of governance.

Calls For Obama’s Healthcare Reform ” : 

It's not even noon on the West Coast and already Capitol Hill staffers say they're getting nonstop calls from 
constituents in support of President Barack Obama's health insurance reform. At about 2:15 EST, Organizing for 
America (OFA) surpassed it's goal of 100,000 phone calls to Congress, each one imploring representatives to vote for 
reform. The nationwide "Time to Deliver on Health Reform" event is the most massive outpouring of support from 
Obama supporters since Election Day 2008. 

Senate Democratic aides told HuffPost that their phones have been ringing off the hook. "We're getting 
completely crushed with calls, jamming our phone lines from the moment we opened," said one aide. 

Another said they'd gotten "pretty much non-stop health care calls from OFA." A third also said their office 
was getting bombed and that four out of every five calls specifically mentioned the public option. 

Not surprising... 

Washington Post, 10/20: ‘Public option gains support: CLEAR MAJORITY NOW 
BACKS PLAN’ : 

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that support for a government-run health-care plan to compete with 
private insurers has rebounded from its summertime lows and wins clear majority support from the public. 

[...] 

On the issue that has been perhaps the most pronounced flash point in the national debate, 57 percent of all 
Americans now favor a public insurance option, while 40 percent oppose it. Support has risen since mid-August, 
when a bare majority, 52 percent, said they favored it. (In a June Post-ABC poll, support was 62 percent.)

I'm pasting Adrienne's event summary to the larger group below. 

The crowd was nuts for her, and this was a particularly good effort by advance, it looked great. 

Before the rally she did a tour of the training facility and learned about how carpentry is changing to be more 
energy efficient in the equipment they use and the methods used to build frames for houses. There will be 
some great images on the wire. 

We're landing in Ohio now. 

Executive summary: Hillary began by repeating some her remarks on Trump from this morning, which were 
well received. Reporters noticed Hillary take strong swipes at Sanders’ misrepresentation of her record and 
his own. She contrasted well with Sanders on her ability to get things done, highlighting that she “voted for 
the auto bailout when it counted, and he didn’t” and speaking at length about her support of export-import, 
which benefits Missouri. She got a lot of cheers when she closed by saying “let’s go build the future that our 
country deserves, together.”

I want to say a few words about what happened last night in Chicago. You know, we will always have our

from Donald Trump and the encouragement of violence and aggression is wrong and it's dangerous. 

If you play with matches, you're going to start a fire you can't control. That's not leadership. That's political arson. 
The test of leadership and citizenship is the opposite. If you see bigotry, oppose it. If you see violence, condemn it. 
And if you see a bully, stand up to him. 

Now look, I know it's no secret there are people angry on the left, on the right and for some very good reasons. 
Many people have gotten a raw deal for too long. Our economy and our politics have failed to deliver results the way 
they should. But I believe with all my heart, the only way to fix what's broken is to stand together against the forces 

of division and discrimination that are trying to divide America between us and them.

And that means finding common ground where we can and holding our ground whenever we must. That means 
working for real solutions to our problems. Not making promises we can't keep or proposals that don't add up. You 
don't give the chance to make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great. 

Our values, our diversity, our openness. These are strengths, not weaknesses. So we're not here to build walls. 
We're here to break down all the barriers holding people back. And to build those ladders of opportunity for 
everybody no matter where you live. No matter who you are. That has been my goal my entire adult life. To give 
every person in this country, particularly our children, the chance to live up to their God-given potential. Because 
then and only then, can America live up to its potential, too. So I can't thank you enough for being here this 
morning. Because what I saw last night in Chicago was deeply disturbing to me. 

We have work to do. We've got to break down the economic barriers that hold folks back. We don't have enough

6 radio interviews and 2 coffee shops this morning. Interviews were all live or taped 
Detroit stations with the exception of one we did into Flint. Quick hits, mostly centered 
around getting out to vote. Flint came up in every one, and then education, and ACA. 
No flags. Every single interviewer was for her. Highlight of the morning was one of the 
hosts, whose stage name is "Foolish" asked a question, to which HRC replied "Well, 
Foolish, that is far from a foolish question." Awkward chuckles all around. 


We did 2 OTRs, both at very hip coffee shops a couple of miles outside of downtown

Detroit. 


The first was Avalon, not too far from the Shinola Store. HRC walked in and chatted 
with the baristas a little, then went to one of two small sitting areas and shook a lot of 
hands. She had several interesting conversations, one with a woman who has cystic 
fibrosis, and her friend who also has it had met and chatted with HRC in NH. We'll get 
the audio and have the exchanges transcribed. 


Second OTR was at Astro coffee, near the old Detroit train station, which was pretty 
striking. HRC shook a lot of hands and ordered yet more coffee. Lots of people 
seemed to have voted, and lots said they'd voted for her. 


Back at the hotel now, likely until we leave for Cleveland this evening.

ICYMI, HRC did a 7 minute pre-taped hit on Face the Nation this morning. 
Dickerson began by asking if Senator Sanders should stay in the race until the 
end. She said that's for him to decide, she's proud to have more delegates and to 
have built a broad coalition that can win in November. He asked about 
enthusiasm on the Republican side. She said that she was proud to have gotten 
more votes than anyone in this race, and mentioned that she has more white 
support than anyone if you exclude Vermont. She got asked about Trump bring 
people into his coalition, she said she wanted everyone in hers. Asked about 
emails and played a little offense on the WaPo report this morning that made clear 
how many state officials, including career, we're sending what's now considered 
classified. Name-checked Powell and mentioned that he called this all absurd. 
Final question was about Libya, stemming from the NYT 2-parter last week. 
Handled it well. 


Then we went to church. 3 to be exact. 


We began at the Holy Ghost Cathedral, with about 400 congregants I'd guess. 
The Bishop gave a rousing introduction about how much she loves Hillary Clinton, 
because HRC is a woman who's been through difficult times and come out on the 
other side with the Glory of God. 


HRC's remarks were powerful, she talked about the need for us to unite. That we 
need citizenship and stewardship in addition to leadership. Real togetherness 
message. She told the story of the prodigal son, and used it to talk to the 
congregation about the discipline of gratitude. She then did Flint, schools in 
Detroit, and then a litany on breaking down barriers. Ended by talking about the 
need to never grow weary doing good.

Next up was Russell Street Missionary Baptist Church 


Pastor gave a nice intro, started by praising President Clinton, said "today she 
comes before us standing in her own shoes, with her own record, and her own 
vision." Mentioned Debra and other strong women from the bible. 


HRC opened with love and kindness. Talked about Flint, ended by saying that we 
need to stand up for each other and our future. 


Final church was Triumph Church. The sanctuary was a beautiful wooden dome 
with stained glass windows. She opened with barriers here, then praised Obama 
and the ACA. Talked about togetherness, and did Flint at the end. 


Very good morning. 


On a personal note, I just had two Coney Island hot dogs at the famous Lafayette 
Coney Island next to the hotel. I highly recommend. Bring your defibrillator, or 
ask to borrow one from USSS.

Jobs speech was great. She stuck to the script mostly, cut out a few things 
(didn't mention the /ideas webpage and cut out the story at the end). Only 
real add was a line at the end about "bad mouthing America" that some tried 
to seize on as a shot at Bernie, but it was (mostly) about the GOP. 


The Harwood interview was a little less substantive than promised, but she 
did fine. Got clawbacks in there, and a lot of questions about her approach 
to the economy, but all in the context of Bernie, Trump, what's politically 
viable. She got emails as well, handled well. 


Did an OTR at Kuzzo's Chicken and Waffles with the Mayor and 
Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence. Lots of enthusiasm, lots of selfies. 


We did 4 radio interviews, into Jackson, MS, New Orleans x2, and Detroit. 
All very positive interviews, disproportionately about college affordability and

We are now officially no longer 88 days from a press avail, but 0. Merica, 
Kami, Abby Philipps, and some locals asked her questions. Merica asked 
her about expectations today, she said were working hard, hope people turn 
out. Asked about Sanders' path, she declined to comment, said she's going 
to keep going. 


Local asked about message for Minnesota voters today. Talked about 
breaking down barriers. 


Abby Philipps asked her about Trump being the eventual nominee. She 
dodged. Said they all have deeply troubling views. 


of the WaPo asked about Trump, she said things like this need to be 
repudiated. She would continue speak out against bigotry. 


Annie Kami asked her another expectations question (I think), she again 
have a pretty stock answer. She tried to ask about asking for Bernie to get 
out of the race, she said that everyone has to make their own decisions. 


Local asked her about Trump, she talked about speaking out against insults. 


She met a Somali woman who wanted to tel her she was going caucus for

HRC, Dayton, and the Lieutenant Governor made it to the counter ordered 
coffee (HRC got something called the Big Bang). 


A guy came over to her at the counter and told her that he had just received 
a letter back from her yesterday. He had written HRC about a health 
problem (I think with his dad). They had a really nice exchange about how 
useful it was for her to hear stories like his so she can figure out how to 
help. 


Her final real interaction before leaving was with a Somali-American girl, 
probably 26 or 27, who said that Somali-American youth are being 
marginalized and experiencing prejudice, and given her comments about the 
African American community, how do we know she'd be any different now? 
She mentioned super predator specifically. HRC said she'd used the word 
one time, and to look at her record. The young woman said she knew what 
her record was and that it was supportive of the African American 
community, which is why so many have supported her campaign. She 
mentioned the Somali-American councilman that she'd just seen, and that 
she'd met with members of the community last time she was in Minneapolis. 
The girl responded by saying something to the effect of the councilman 
doesn't count. HRC told her that if she believes that than maybe she should 
run for office. At this point the Governor intervened and the conversation 
ended. 


Left the coffee shop for Global Market, and indoor market with food and 
other stands that sell various things. We got mobbed in the lobby so barely 
made it to the proper market everywhere. Took some selfies and then out. 


Taxiing now to head to Miami.

was a good rally. She loves her some Arkansas and Arkansas loves 
her. She opened with a little togetherness but quickly reverted to her 
stump, beginning with rising incomes. She ended by doing breaking 
barriers. There were a few hundred people in the room and then a 
few hundred more in a gymnasium next door where she spoke very 
briefly and worked another long rope line.

### 


Executive summary: This was one of Hillary’s best recent rallies. She 
looked incredibly comfortable on stage as she spoke about the 
differences between her and the Republican nominees, our country’s 
economic success under her husband, voting rights, Supreme Court 
and more. 


Reporters noticed Hillary speaking more freely about her husband, 
referring to him by his first name and to his time as president. 

Mentions of her time in Arkansas, investment in jobs and infrastructure 
and debt-free college got the most applause. She got a lot of nods 
when she said, “its not enough to create opportunities for my 
granddaughter, I want to create opportunities for everybody.”

2 churches and a coffee shop this morning. I was (and still am) 
feeling blessed and caffeinated this Sunday afternoon. 


Churches were Greater Imani Church and Mississippi Boulevard 
Christian Church. Imani had about 2000 congregants there, 800 
or so at Mississippi Blvd. 


She gave a similar speech at each, sort of an abbreviated new 
stump, did togetherness, mothers of the movement, health care, 
love and kindness. First one was probably a little better 
organized, but crowd at each was fired up. Lots of applause and 
lots of individual cheers. 


Left there and flew to Nashville, where we joined Tony Goldwyn 
and the Mayor Megan Barry for a coffee stop at Fido, near 
Vanderbilt. The place was packed, she ordered some coffee and 
took lots of photos, spoke to the owner and his son for awhile. 

On small thing to note: on the way in Tony asked her what 
she thought of Trump's David Duke comments this morning. She 
replied that it was "pathetic" under her breath, which has made a 
little news (in a good way). 


The rally at Meharry Medical college was high-energy. Tony 
Goldwyn did LONG but solid intro. HRC visited an overflow room 
with about 400. 800 in the main room. She told the story again 
about the young, affluent white guy that emailed her after her 
Harlem speech and said he'd been arrested but through 
connections his parents made the charges go away. All people 
must be equal under the law. 


Long ropeline and out.

Good trip to Georgia. 


City hall was packed, with several hundred more in overflow than 
in the event itself. HRC spoke at both, with Mayor Reed getting 
everyone fired up. Speech was shorter but pretty standard 
stump otherwise. 


We left and went to the Statehouse which was electric. Who 
knew there were that many Democrats in Georgia. She 
addressed the Democratic Caucus and did a short version of her 
stump that was pretty crisp. She used a line about spending 10 
months crafting policies, and while the press may have thought 
that was boring, she's very proud of it. People loved it. There 
were no press in the room. 


We took many a selfie while wading through throngs of people, 
with more pouring over the balconies, and headed to Octane 
coffee shop for an OTR. Usher was going to join us but got stuck 
in traffic... 


Dan Merica asked her if she was jealous that she didn't get 
Christie's endorsement, to which she responded with a prolonged 
smile (you could see the gears turning), and then said "Dan, I 
really like you. I really really like you." They are basically 
courting each other at this point. 


She got one question from local CBS, general about why she's in 
Georgia. She gave a stock answer about being a good partner if 
she's lucky enough to win. 


In the air headed to Orangeburg now.

Two events and two NBC interviews down, seem to be 
surviving the day. I even venture to say it's going well. 


The town hall in Kingstree was very engaging. 

Stuck largely to remarks: 

Senator Sanders wants to take us back on HC. 

Hit the GOP, saying they have health care through their 
jobs so what do they have to worry about. 


Schools/Education 


Did the SCOTUS piece, including Sandoval: 


"Now there's been some talk that the President might 
nominate the R Gov of NV. I love NV. But I sure hope the 
President chooses a true progressive that stands up to the 
values and interests of the people of this country, name- 
checked voting rights." 


Q<$A was strong, covered vets, someone asked about 
Haley, accusing her of being so focused on being GOP VP 
that she doesn't care about South Carolinians. Got asked 
about HIPPY. Forgiveness of debt for enterprise in AfAm 
communities. Guns, Ukraine, child asked what she would 
do to stop terrorist attacks in the US, she gave a great 
answer that ended with he telling the little girl to worry 
about school and her friends, and HRC would worry about 
making sure she's safe. Puerto Rico question from a 
young autistic man- she advocated for them voting and if 
they choose to become a state allowing them to do so.

Elizabeth Warren for VP? 

I don't want to get ahead of myself. 

Super predator, in the expected formulation where Joe

Did some smiley head knodding in agreement with Joe's SP 
assessment. Was probably fine but let's keep an eye on. 

Electability

Hasn't even begun on the others 

Talked about voter turnout, NV caucus being better for Dem 
turnout than GOP 

Emails, you say it's partisan, but is it? 

Conflation of court fight which are partisan and what DOJ is 
doing. 

Youth/Young women 

She stayed closer than usual to the Teddy formulation: 

It's Messed up 

Feel like the system failed them 

Excited by someone who says well change it all 

I remember being that age 

Want to meet people where they are 

Want to have a real dialogue

Not someone who gets ahead of myself. 
Got to keep proving it over and over again. 


2) Clyburn says you've been more conversational. 


• So proud 

• Fair observation 

• We laid out a lot of policy in the beginning 

• I wanted people to know my plans, etc 

• Now we have some opportunities to talk about values at stake, breaking down barriers. 

• Sense of convergence 

• We've laid out the work we want to do. 

• Now we can build on that about how we unite the country and have conversations about the future again. 


3) Ohio/Bernie NAFTA hit 

• Americans are asking who can stop other countries from hurting their workers and do a Manufacturing 
Renaissance. ..rest of answer we provided- got in both Ex-lm investments in Ohio and name checked the 
tire factory that benefited from the New Markets Tax credit in Sumter. 


4) Protestor last night 

• Poor choice of words 

• Wouldnt' use them today's 

• Life's work 

• Lifting up children and young people 

• Never got the chance they deserved 

• School to prison pipeline 

• Going to keep being a champion 

• Break down the barriers, economic and racism 

5) Trump/Supporters are former Trump supporters. 

• Too soon to make judgements about this. 

• NV Caucuses stat on turnout 

6) People say their second choice is Bernie, seems to be an appetite for radical change. 

• People are disappointed and feel like they've been let down.

Started the day with an interview with Joe Madison, she called him on our way to SC Strong in North Charleston. 


Opened with a PBS story on the wealth gap growing. She talked about her plans and inequality in general. Follow 
up was about Obama's hesitancy to have targeted efforts, instead focusing on the all boats rise with the tide 
notion, so she skipped the Obama piece and talked about Clyburn's 10-20-30, her own plans. 


Then he played Gwen Carr's comments lasts night, quoted some of her lines including the one about HRC seeking 
them out, and compared it to Kennedy going to see MLK when he was arrested in Alabama. HRC gave a strong 
answer about being humbled, being a mother and a grandmother. 


Gitmo Q at the end, answer tracked with her statement yesterday. 


SC Strong went well. She did some very brief opening remarks, had a couple of the round table participants share 
their stories, and then we shuffled the press out. 


Dropped by the Longshoremen's, she thanked everyone and asked for their vote. Great reception, they were very 
grateful that she came to the hall. 


On the way to the airport we called Rhonda Rawlings for her show. 


Rhonda started with minimum wage. HRC stuck to her standard lines, mentioned equal pay, got a follow up on 
why $12 and defended it well. 


College affordability. She said she think debt free public education is achieveable. Covered student debt as well. 


Breaking Down Barriers forum with the mothers in Greenville. ..talked about how amazing it was, then asked about

Ended with Obama's legacy. 


Alpha Kappa Alpha event went well. She did some of her remarks, some ad libbing. She reprised her town hall Q 
from last night where she was asked about trust and forgiveness, repeated what she said about the importance of 
forgiveness and cited Mandela as our greatest example. Worked a rope line at the end for a fair amount of time. 


Did two local affiliates before headed off to Sumter. CBS and NBC locals. Talked about the state of the race, why 
she's in SC, Gitmo, and a quick O about emails and Benghazi in CBS. NBC asked her about SC, Trust, Trump, 
Bernie supporters and how to bring them around if she wins, and one interesting question about her unique ability 
to energize rooms with minorities in them. 


We're in Sumter now at Moore College. She's been talking for 45 minutes. Covered it all! Possible impending

Mothers of the Movement Event 


Here's a summary, but for those of you that didn't watch. ..it was quite something. 


She opened by acknowledging Herb Buhl, who she worked with when she was down here working for CDF in 
the 1960s. Told a funny story about not knowing how to drive a stick shift and him lending her a manual car. 


She briefly told the stories of the mothers and the children they lost. 


Guns are the leading cause of death among black men, more than the other leading 9 causes of death 
combined. There was an audible sigh in the audience. 


Talked about Gabby Giffords, and the 9 year old girl shot along with the others that day.

Politics are hard, I know that. But sometimes the hard things are sometimes the things that are most 
important to do. President Obama wants to make guns a voting issue and I agree completely. 


Please welcome these remarkable people who are taking this journey on behalf of all of us. 


HRC turned it over to the guests. 


Sabrina Fulton: "She walked in as a Presiodental candidate, walked out as a compassionate mother." 


No one took notes fort her, she took notes for herself. 


Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton, told her story. 


Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis.- told her story. I have watched her bring people and countries back 
into the fold back into the fray, and she has done a good thing. 


Gwen Carr- Talked about all the outreach, how HRC came to them. Wondering what the catch was. "There 
was no catch, she was just genuinely concerned." I endorse her, because she endorsed us first. 


Geneva Reed-Veal, Sandra Bland's mom. Did a wonderful rant on the media and how tired she was of 
them. Go out and vote. We have 9 months to put her in, she's the new baby. "There are no secret emails." 


Mark Kelly: X percent of children that die from gun violence in the developing world die in the US. 


Gabby- Here to talk about Hillary Clinton, who is tough, she is courageous, she will fight to make our families 
safer. In the WH she will stand up to the gun lobby. Thanks why lU'm voting for Hillary. Speaking is difficult 
for me but come January I want to say these two words. ..Madame President. 


Standing ovation from the room, someone stood up and yelled "Madame President!" Everyone went nuts. 


HRC said thanks to everyone, talked about their courage. I hope this is a movement that lasts, and ended to 
work a rope line. 


***At the very end, she briefly spoke to Alex Wagner on the rope line who was there with The Circus. I'm not 
sure it checked the box for us, but they talked briefly about how amazing the mothers were, what a moving

• She reiterated her commitment to fight for CIR with a pathway to citizenship; protect and implement DACA

categories"). 

• She stated support for UFW's legislative proposal to expand overtime pay for farm workers in CA, so 
overtime is av. after 40 hours/week or 8 hours/day. 

• She was asked to help in the dispute between the UFW and CA-based Gerawan Farming. She said she's

caution b/c of campaign. 

• She was asked about healthcare for the undocumented community. Stated her support for all 
undocumented people to be able to buy in the exchange, but acknowledged that most people don't have 
the resources to afford it. She also said she would work to make the exchanges available to all, including 
subsidies, but immediately linked it to CIR. Also wants to work with states like CA and the UFW to explore 
other ways to provide HC 

• Re Central American kids, she said government funded legal counsel for UCs and working with El

Two SC radio interviews today: 


1 ) We did a repeat with Cynthia Hardy that ended up being a very brief conversation HRC joined in progress about 
health disparities in communities of color. 


2) She did a slightly tougher but ultimately very strong interview with Judi Gatson of 103.1 KISS FM. She asked 
HRC about her recent comments on not being in this for herself, and said that some doubt that. The answer was 
very strong, and invoked a little reflection on sexism. She asked about youth, but the framing was interesting, 
which was that BdB and Eric Garner's mom endorse, but children of BdB and Eric Garner's sister do not. The 
other question most of note was Judi observing that she hears people in the community say that HRC embraces 
Obama only to pander to the AfAm population. Interesting that that broke through, (Stephanie if you talked to her 
I'd be curious to hear more about how often she's hearing that), HRC's answer was good, she said that Senator 
Sanders claiming that was offensive, that she nominated him at the convention, campaigned for him, worked for 
him for 4 years, and that it "affects" her "personally" to hear Sanders and his supporters say that stuff. 


Finance event in Atherton was largely uneventful. She did take questions. She dinged Uber when talking about

We visited the home of Vicki Early, a retired California utility company employee who moved to Nevada to buy her

yard and told her story. HRC had the press come in closer to listen and then dos brief remarks of her own on the 
importance of this issue for people like Vicki. Pretty great stuff. 


Next we went to Youthbuild, an organization with a Nevada chapter that builds houses for Habitat for Humanity. 

We walked through a big warehouse where HRC individually met about 15 workers. She was intrigued by how 
most of them found the place, which was through Craigslist, and probed them on what they were learning and what 
they wanted to do next. Most wanted to continue in the building trades. She spoke briefly, and invited the 
Youthbuild and Habitat folks to speak as well.

Very engaging discussion, topics ranged from early childhood education to food deserts to Flint. HRC brought up 
Flint proactively, and a woman stood up and said that she had family there, appreciated HRC saying that, her work 
there, and that her assessment was exactly right. Audience was diverse across the board, lots of millennials and 
lots of young people who work for various NGOs and advocacy groups with a lot of very good questions and 
passionate comments. At the end HRC commented on her life's work, figuring out how to make difference in 
people's lives as opposed to promising them the moon, and making sure lives are better when you're done than 
when you started. Wasn't too hot but poignant and noticeable following 45 minutes of discussing the importance of 
reading to your children every day. 


We're now going to divert course and make a pit stop at a woman's house who has been affected by the Nevada

South Carolina was quite something. Good crowd of about 450/500 at Denmark-Olar Elementary School (home of 
the Vikings). HRC stuck largely to her remarks and outlined her $125 billion plan to improve underserved 
communities, and took questions on just about everything: social security, health care multiple times, body 
cameras, Flint, homeless vets, Trump, student loans, who she's pick for VP, and a little girl who gave her a drawing 
that said on it: "I'm not bossy I have leadership skills." It was a very engaged, high-energy affair. 


Following the town hall and a long ropeline, we did 2 TV stand ups and a print interview. Discussion in both 
revolved around race relations, the state of the race, and education, which HRC discussed at length in a 
dilapidated older locker room with paint people off the walls in the background. 


Our print interviewer, Princess Williams, was really impressive. She won an award last year for best student 
journalist in a college under 5000 students from the South Carolina Press Association. She was nervous but did a 
great job, asked HRC about education, what we can't do beyond government programs to help level the playing 
field, attracting young voters, and what life is like off the campaign trail.

there, he asked her how she would distinguish he civil rights record, then Flint, millennial women, voting rights, and 
a question about Cruz's comments on Flint and Katrina both being cities with crisis and two very liberal mayors.

Dan O'Neil, former Dodd and O'Malley supporter but '92 Clinton

Restaurant felt overwhelmingly supportive. 

We went back to the hotel and taped 6 TV interviews with local and 
Boston affiliates. Lots about the state of the race here and the 
weather. Most asked about Warren which she handled well, a couple of 
transcripts questions and a good exchange with FOX on sexism in 
politics. 

From there we went to Manchester Community College. Crowd of about 
1 100, she did a few things differently, including calling Bernie out 
for accepting DSCC money that came in part from Wall Street. 

We taped Rachel Maddow after the event. It opened with the staffing 
question and then covered the waterfront... Flint, trust, attacks, 
transcripts. We let it go so Rachel would spend more time on the 
positive which she did. 

After Maddow we went to the Velcro factory. She went table to table 
in their cafeteria which looked like a Johnny Rockets, shaking hands, 
sometimes sitting down for brief conversations. Press pool got some

MCCAIN CAMPAIGN GRUMBLES ABOUT MEDIA FACT-CHECKING 

Realizing that the facts were not on their side, the McCain campaign has taken to attacking the media for reporting facts. 
*See Attached Documents on Media Fact-Checking McCain Campaign 


McCain Campaign Attacks Media for Reporting 


McCain Campaign Pulls Interview From CNN After Spokesman Can't Answer Honest Question "According to 
CNN , Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) pulled out of a scheduled interview with the network after a segment 
with Campbell Brown and a top McCain spokesman Monday night in which Brown asked for examples of a foreign-policy decision 
made by Republican vice president pick Sarah Palin." [Broadcasting Cable 9/2/08] 


McCain Campaign Attacks New York Times "While the press scrambles to report on the process by which Governor Palin 
was offered the second spot on the Republican ticket, New York Times reporter Elisabeth Bumiller has opted instead to make up her own 
version of events." [Michael Goldfarb 9/02/08] 


McCain Spokesman Claims ABC Reporter is a Liar "Apparently Tapper would not comment on how he managed to print a 
story that had absolutely no basis in fact." [Tucker Bounds 9/02/08] 


Bridge to Nowhere and Pork Fighting a Myth - Palin and McCain Have Procured Earmarks. 


Palin Claims to be a Maverick Against Pork, But Received $27 Million in Earmarks "Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin 
employed a lobbying firm to secure almost $27 million in federal earmarks for a town of 6,700 residents while she was its mayor, according 
to an analysis by an independent government watchdog group." [Washington Post 9/02/08] 


Palin Falsely Claims She Always Opposed 'Bridge to Nowhere' "While running for governor in 2006, though, Palin 
backed federal funding for the infamous bridge, which McCain helped make a symbol of pork barrel excess." [Ken Dilanian 9/02/08]

Thanks guys. It sounds like we are in a holding pattern again on KXL. That said, I agree with the approach in the memo and 
think we should deploy it at the right time. 

Three things: 

1. I believe we should establish our Arctic position soon. I agree with the approach in the memo and would just add at the 
front "Based on what I know now...." This would give her some flexibility later. 

2. I'd like John to take a close look at our revised LCV questionnaire. Can one of you send it to him, with the modified Arctic 
language? 

3. How are we looking on updating the CEC factsheet? 

Thanks,

The GOP Party of NO’s Sick View on Health Care Reform: Forget 
the Tens of Thousands of Americans Losing Their Health 
Coverage Every Month, There’s Political Points to Be Scored Here 

"If we're able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him. " - U.S.

fSOURCE: Washington Post. 7/21/0Q ] 


Tom McMahon, Acting Executive Director, Americans United for Change: “Let’s take the 
GOP’s disingenuous advice for a moment, ‘slow things down’ and look what’s happening here. Literally tens of 
thousands of Americans each and every month are joining the already 47 million who have absolutely no health 
insurance. Unwilling to let another year go by as 2.3 million Americans lose their coverage and exploding health 
care costs keep our economy pinned down, the President has reached out to both parties in Congress and asked 
for reform that guarantees all Americans access to quality and affordable health care. And all the Party of NO can 
do in response is lick their chops at the thought of scoring political points and derailing his Presidency. That’s 
sick. Have they offered any alternative health care plan of their own? Of course not. They’re perfectly happy to 
‘slow down’ reform another 15 years as long as those big insurance checks keep coming in.”

this is a press decision, but i would be against giving out anything that is not otherwise public, like money or signups, if we want to 
address that stuff at all, would just say something generic about how donations and volunteer signups are flying in, and not give 
numbers. 

stats like RTs, Facebook likes, video views on Facebook, etc., which are public anyway, can of course be shared, we can compile if 
helpful.

Speech was good. She throttled off the funny a little too early I think, they were hungry for more, but in the 
end it didn't matter. Good on humor, good on a light nudge for accountability, and good on substance. 

She had no plans to sit but wanted to see the Toner kids present. She sat again after remarks and connected 
with most of the beat folks as Huma noted below along with Jonathan Martin, Betsy Fischer, Laura Meckler, and 
a few others. The Carolyn Ryan conversation was awkward but appreciated by Carolyn. She asked her a few 
questions about health care and the courts. Was fine. 

The best part is that HRC was squarely in the mindset of very glad she did it, and glad she stayed and mingled. 

It was a good setting for it. 

A little griping about her not taking questions (Biden spoke last year and also did not take Qs), including Dan Balz 
jokingly offering to yield his time for her to take some questions during his remarks. But I think it was fine, 
especially because it was truly what the family wanted. 

All in a all and very good evening.

Will let Nick and Dan give more color but it appears as though her speech was well-received by both guests and 
reporters in the room. They appreciated that she was funny and several people said they were impressed she 
addressed the elephant in the room and was self-deprecating. Andrea mitchell, laura meckler, jon alien, anne 
gearan, phil rucker, karen tumulty in unison agreed that she did the right thing and appreciated that she 
"acknowledged" that she has a problematic relationship with the press. Nick, hrc and I all had uncomfortable 
exchanges with Carolyn Ryan. Carl Hulse said some NYT staff was betting that she would cancel her appearance 
tonight. 

Also, we noted at least one young tracker. And she was audio taped the entire mix and mingle by amy chozick who 
may as well have been sitting in her lap....

Hello John, Cheryl, Victoria and Jennifer - Although I continue to respond to people's sharing of their concerns 
about the Foundation and/or my father's world by telling them that 1 ) I hope they will share their experiences/ 
concerns/hopes/fears with Victoria and her team candidly and 2) that it is critical that as we move to 
professionalize the Foundation for the future that professionalism starts with this process - people continue to 
share things with me. Although I continue to not respond or engage beyond what I outlined above, I do think - 
and my mother strongly agreed as a lawyer - that I should pass along to you Victoria and your team and to you 
John and Cheryl the below as more information (factual or suspected or imagined). Particularly in advance of 
what I understand will be an intermediate conversation with Doug tomorrow. I continue to want - and to try - to 
disintermediate myself from this muddle, edify the corporate audit and existential process we are in - while also 
being a responsible board member, daughter and person. 

In that vein, I was told or experienced the following since we had our meeting last week Victoria: 

- today that Doug reached out to someone at Harry Walker (who represents my father on all speaking 
arrangements), to ask for a full list of all his speeches, how much he was paid for each speech, and told the 
contact person at Harry Walker that all speeches should now go through him, not Terry Krinivic (the scheduler) 

- that Ilya physically saw/caught Justin a couple of days ago reading his bberry and loading the same spyware 
onto his computer that he loaded onto Bari's computer 

- a secret service agent told Marc (my husband) that Justin had asked another secret service agent to lie about 
the parking pass absurdity [we can talk about this really ridiculous anecdote offline] 

- multiple people shared with me how upset they were at hearing how Justin referred to my father in the last 
week - in very derogatory ways widely sadly 

- Oscar told my father he knows Justin reads his emails 

- my father was told today of explicit examples at CGI of Doug/ Teneo pushing for - and receiving - free 
memberships - and of multiple examples of Teneo 'hustling' business at CGI - and of people now having quit at 
CGI 

- that Doug told Jon Davidson he was never going to forgive him for not reporting that Dad met with John (ie you 
John) on Sunday and that how could Jon forget who he really worked for 

- Doug told Terry Krinivic she would never work again in this town if she didn't back him up on everything 

- Ilya believes Hannah and Justin have taken significant sums of money from my parents personally - some in 
expenses - cars, etc. - and others directly 

As ever, on some of the above I am sure there are three sides as my grandmother would say - his, hers and the 
truth. On others, it seems more clear. All of it makes me very sad. Thank you all for your help. The only people I 
am sharing the above with are you, my mother and my father. Please let me know as ever if you have any 
questions or advice. 

Thank you, 

Chelsea

Seems like a truly significant and impressive agreement that must have taken incredible effort and skill to complete. Really good news for the world. 
Literally. 

And, at a time when people are constantly looking for reasons to feel cynical about government, this is a terrific antidote.

LEAGUE OF 

Dear John, 

The Senate is facing another critical environmental decision right 
now. 

The Senate is debating legislation that responds to the oil spill 
catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. While this bill is no substitute for 
action on a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, it would help 
ensure companies like BP are held fully accountable, prevent future oil 
spill catastrophes, protect our nation’s natural heritage, and curb the 
free reign the oil and gas industries have enjoyed for far too long 

Big Oil's army of lobbyists is fighting this bill hard - they and their 
cronies in Congress want taxpayers to foot the bill for the disaster in 
the Gulf. 

The Senate plans to vote this week - this is the moment when our calls, Hill visits, online and TV 
advertising, and grassroots outreach are the most effective. And for the next 12 hours, your support 
will go twice as far to get the message through: 

Hurry - the matching gift offer expires at midnight tonight! Give now and your gift will be 
automatically doubled by a generous donor as furious as you. 

But as Big Oil ramps up its efforts, we can only be as aggressive in our response as our resources allow. 

John, I know you're furious with the spineless Senators who caved to Big Oil's money and influence. 

This is your chance to stand up against Big Oil. This is the most effective way you can fight back and 
help put an end to our dangerous addiction to oil. This is just the start - with Bection Day a little more than 
90 days away, we need every resource at our disposal to beat back Big Oil and Dirty Coal’s millions. 

Won’t you stand up against Big Oil and Dirty Coal? Every dollar you give before MIDNIGHT 
TONIGHT will go twice as far to support our tireless efforts to defeat those responsible for 
last month’s setback and ensure pro-environment leaders win in November. 

If you still believe in a clean energy future, join with us to keep the pressure on Congress to stay 
strong in the face of Big Oil's assault on our environment. 

Thank you for your support. We can’t do this without you. 

Sincerely, 



Gene Karpinski 

League of Conservation Voters 


There are only 12 hours left 
before the matching gift offer 
expires and we haven't heard 
from you yet. 

Don’t let Big Oil off the hook. 

Give by midnight TONIGHT 
and every dollar will be 
doubled »

To: Cheryl Mills < chervl. mills@amail.com > 


Here are a few thoughts on great policy talent, to go along with Comms/Press names I gave you. All could 
be day to day policy director or dep policy director material. 

David Zikusoka -- he's about 32, Harvard grad, worked on '07-'08 policy staff of Obama campaign doing 
domestic policy, foreign policy staffer for Biden, and now at DoD. Ugandan parents. Ziggy is incredibly 
smart, hard working and a delight to be around. Jake Sullivan should know him well (he worked for Jake 
when he was with Biden). 

Wally Adeyamo -- he's about Ziggy's age, maybe a few years older. Yale law. Worked for Geithner and 
Neil Wolin at Treasury, CFPB, and I'm not sure where in Admin he is now but could track him down. Whip 
smart, serious, has management expertise so could run policy process. I believe he has worked on 
campaigns (maybe Edwards?) in past. 

I would guess that both Ziggy and Wally would be very interested if role was senior enough. Three other 
people who might be good, though perhaps harder to pull from what they are doing now: 

Jason Green -- Yale Law, about 34, former Obama campaign staff, White House counsel's office, now 
running a startup. Very interested in long term career in politics in Maryland. 

Michelle Jawando -- former Gillibrand legislative director. Now VP for Legal Policy at CAP. 

Deirdre Henry Spires — superstar former senate finance committee staffer when Baucus was chair, she 
was point on everything from tax policy to unemployment to health care. Jason Furman and I tried to get 
her high ranking assistant secretary post at DOL when she left senate. I think she maybe took something 
at HHS with Sylvia. Very talented. She's about 40, with family, so may be tougher. But she is great.

Subject: Energy Policy - Would You Like Some Help? 

John, 

If you would like help on the transition team for energy matters I 
would be happy to help out. I have attached my resume. 

Washington generally regards Oklahoma as a black hole when it comes to 
alternative energy. We're seen as part of the old guard, an oil and 
gas state, enemies of alternative energy initiatives and hostile to 
concerns about global warming. Our Congressional delegation leaves 
that impression, no doubt. 

The truth is more layered. True, we are the 3rd largest domestic 
producer of natural gas and the 5th largest producer of domestic oil. 

I know both industries well. I also know the dangers to national 
security, the economy and the environment of an energy policy of more 
of the same. Consequently, the focus of my efforts as the Secretary 
of Energy for the last 5 years has been to introduce alternative, 
sustainable energy solutions in Oklahoma, to build public acceptance 
and legislative support for a new course.

We have been remarkably successful. Some of the highlights, we have 

Authored and passed legislation to establish a $40 million Oklahoma 
Bioenergy Center to develop both feedstock (cellulosic) and conversion 
technologies for biofuels. The OBC currently has collaborations with 
Oakridge, Idaho National Lab, Abengoa, Ceres Inc and has established a 
1000 acre switchgrass farm; 

Established cost sharing formulas across the Southwest Power Pool 
(FERC approved) to facilitate the build out of electric transmission 
to 40,000 +/-megawatts of wind power in western Oklahoma, western 
Kansas and the Texas Panhandle; 

Initiated a Demand Side Management rule making so that the electric 
utilities understand that their duty to promote efficiency, as well as 
to provide electricity safely and reliably; 

Established task forces on C02 sequestration management, promulgation 
of new statewide efficiency standards, conversion of government fleets 
to alternative fuels; 

Established a state agency to manage trading in carbon credits. 

At the regional and national level, I served as the Governor's 
representative to the Western Governor's Association (WGA) where I 
co-chaired the Alternative Transportation Fuels Task Force (report 
issued in January 2008) and co-chair the WGA Transportation Fuels 
Council. I am Governor's representative on the Governors' Ethanol 
Coalition, the Governors' Wind Coalition as well as other groups (see 
resume). 

As for policy, the common argument is that we need to do everything. 

We can't. I would identify those areas where we get the most 
leverage, where federal government initiatives can make a difference, 
including some likely to yield near term results. A sample of four 
areas on which the US should concentrate are 

vehicle fuel efficiency ( lowest hanging fruit and the only way to 
really dent oil imports in the short term); 
build out of a smart, fully integrated national electricity 
transmission infrastructure (enabling the more efficient use of 
generation capacity); 

development of advanced battery technology (the key to deep market 
penetration of PEHV and ultimately the full use of our wind power); 
development of advanced, affordable solar technology and deployment to 
the residential and commercial sectors (moving that load off the 
grid). 

I am leaving office in mid-December to return to the private sector. 

I am joining others in a new venture to invest primarily in the 
alternative energy sector, However, if I can be of help, let me know. 

All the best,

LABOR DAY 


GRESSMAN JOHN GARAMENDI 

- ^ ,- 4 1 _ • . 

- HONORING THE WORKING FAMILIES OF AMERICA 


Dear Friends, 

From my family to yours, Happy Labor Day! 

Today we celebrate and honor the many men and women who fought the long struggle for 
better working conditions and fairer wages and benefits in our country. We must never 
forget the countless Americans who risked their livelihoods, and sometimes even their 
lives, to make the American Dream accessible to the many and not a privilege of the few. 
We stand on the shoulders of giants. 

The American middle class was strongest when American manufacturing was strongest. 
The American economy grew fastest when workers stood together and demanded a living 
wage for their hard work. 

That’s why in Congress, I’ve stood against bad trade deals like the Trans Pacific 
Partnership, and I’ve fought for Make It In America policies that make sure that when we 
invest our taxpayer dollars into infrastructure, that money is used to buy goods and 
equipment made in America. I’ve fought against the dismantling of basic social safety net 
services like food support for lower income families, and I’ve urged my colleagues to 
support equal pay for equal work and guaranteed paid sick leave. There’s no one in 
Congress doing more to bring back American shipbuilding. 

Your support helps me continue this work to expand America’s middle class. 

In the past several decades, through bad public policy choices and increased and often 
unfair competition, the economic engine that created the middle class has been breaking 
down. In 1965, the average CEO of a large corporation in America made 24 times the 
earnings of their workers. Today, the average CEO makes more than 300 times the 
average worker's salary. Adjusted for inflation, the federal minimum wage today is 30% 
smaller than it was in 1968. Massive American wealth is still being generated, but almost 
all of it is being tunneled to the top. We can do better. 

We need leaders in Washington who’ll stand up to the plutocrats who think income 
inequality and poverty wages are a good thing. Hardworking Americans deserve a voice, 

and with your support. I will continue to be that voice in 2016 and beyond. 

Thank you once again, and I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day surrounded by the love 
and support of family and friends. 


Sincerely, 



Congressman John Garamendi

Q. Why was it important for the foundation that some foreign government 
donations be allowed to continue after Hillary Clinton became secretary of 
state (i.e. those from governments that had been giving and then continued 
to do so at a steady pace, as well as new or increased donation that cleared a 
state department review)? Why do foundation officials believe such donations 
did not pose any conflicts of interest given Secretary Clinton's role, as some 
have alleged?

First batch of Hillary's State Department emails released 

By LAUREN FRENCH, JOSH GERSTEIN and BRYAN BENDER 

5/22/15 12:13 PM EDT 

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/05/hillary-clinton-emails-release-1 18214.html 

The first batch of emails from Hillary Clinton’s four years running the State Department was released 
Friday. 

Even before the emails were made public, the State Department argued that the nearly 900 pages of 
documents do not fundamentally alter the findings of the State Department’s Accountability Review 
Board that probed the Benghazi terrorist attacks. 

“The emails we release today do not change the essential facts or our understanding of the events 
before, during, or after the attacks, which have been known since the independent Accountability 
Review Board report on the Benghazi attacks was released almost two and a half years ago,” wrote 
the department’s deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf. 

These highly anticipated emails, some of which have already leaked out, give insight into Clinton’s 
tenure as the top U.S. diplomat. They’re also serving as fodder for critics of the Democratic 
presidential front-runner, who is still dogged by questions about a 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi 
that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. 

And they are sure to raise more questions about the administration’s and Clinton’s response to what 
quickly became a political scandal. There is an email dated Sept. 15 with Clinton providing “talking 
points” for an upcoming closed-door hearing before the House Select Committee on Intelligence, but 
with the exception of Jake Sullivan the recipients are blacked out, along with the entire document. 

It states only: “Per the discussion at Deputies, here are the revised TPs for HPSCI.” 

The emails also show that Clinton received now-classified documents on her personal email address. 
One of the documents State recently deemed classified was a November 201 2 email reporting possible 
arrests in Libya related to the Benghazi attack. The memo was sent through unclassified State 
Department channels and forwarded to Clinton’s private account by Sullivan, State’s Director of Policy 
Planning. A notation on the document released says it was classified as -“SECRET” — the middle tier of 
national security classification — on Friday, the same day the records were released. 

Clinton has been under intense pressure for weeks since it was revealed that she used a non-official 
email address while at the State Department and stored those emails on a personal server in her New

York home. Republicans jumped on those revelations to accuse Clinton of attempting to runaround 
federal records laws and keep key documents about Libya and Benghazi from the public. 


Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, has subpoenaed 
the State Department for all documents on Libya from Clinton’s time at the State Department and is 
refusing to schedule the former secretary to testify until the Obama administration turns the emails 
over to congressional investigators.

Insiders: Benghazi testimony works to Hillary's advantage 

KATIE GLUECK 

Gowdy said in a statement Friday that the committee will continue to seek all documents from Clinton’s 
tenure at the State Department on Libya and Benghazi and not the “self-selected” emails the former 
secretary made available. 

“To assume a self-selected public record is complete, when no one with a duty or responsibility to the 
public had the ability to take part in the selection, requires a leap in logic no impartial reviewer should 
be required to make and strains credibility,” Gowdy said. 

The Benghazi Committee has had access to this first batch of email, which represents less than 2 
percent of the 55,000 emails Clinton returned to State, for months. Leaked portions of the emails 
contain extensive communications between Clinton and Sidney Blumenthal — a longtime family ally. 
Blumenthal would often send Clinton memos on the security in Libya before the 2012 attacks that left 
four Americans dead. 

Blumenthal’s analyses of Libya was often met with skepticism from senior State Department officials, 
including Clinton. Gowdy asked the U.S. Marshals Service to serve Blumenthal with a subpoena on 
Tuesday. 

The emails also give a personal look at Clinton’s habits and relationships. 

A Oct. 7, 2012 email from Blumenthal invited Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to 
a dinner. 

“Postelection, we’d like to have you over for dinner. Bill can come, too, if he’s in town. Whatever 
works,” Blumenthal wrote. 

The rest of the 55,000 emails will be released to the public in stages. State proposed releasing those 
records next January, but a judge rejected that plan and ordered the agency to come up with a rolling 
schedule, which has yet to be finalized. 

The documents released Friday are from January 2011 to Dec. 31 , 2012, “and relate to the security of, 
and attacks on, the State Department facility in Benghazi and to the United States’ diplomatic presence 
in Libya, including in Benghazi,” Harf said. 

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Benghazi panel, said in a statement that the 
committee should now schedule Clinton to testify. 

“Instead of the selective leaking that has happened so far, the American people can now read all of 
these emails and see for themselves that they contain no evidence to back up claims that Secretary 
Clinton ordered a stand-down, approved an illicit weapons program, or any other wild allegation 
Republicans have made for years,” Cummings said.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed with aides the chatter on cable news about 
whether she actually suffered a concussion in 2012, according to emails released by the State 
Department on Friday. 

A week before she was to testify before Congress in December 2012 about the attacks in Benghazi, 
Clinton postponed her appearance with aides explaining she had fainted and suffered a concussion. 
On Dec. 20, chief of staff Cheryl Mills forwarded Clinton by email a transcript of Fox News host Greta 
Van Susteren discussing Clinton’s health with Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain. 

“Senator,” Van Susteren said during that segment, “there is a report from the State Department that 
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on Benghazi before the middle of January. There has 
been some criticism of whether or not she has a concussion. I believe she has a concussion. What 
do you think?” 

McCain replied: “I have never seen her back down. And I believe that she is now not physically well 
enough to testify and she will testify the middle of January.” 

Mills sent a transcript of that interview to Clinton’s personal email — hrod@clintonemail.com — and 
to close aide Huma Abdein. 

Speaking of McCain, Clinton replied: “Huma called him and [South Carolina Sen. Lindsey] Graham.” 
“Also,” Clinton added, “someone should call Greta VS to thank her for ‘knowing the truth.’” 

The emails released Friday, ahead of the Memorial Day weekend, are a few of the thousands the 
Democratic presidential candidate has turned over to the State Department from her personal email 
account. Clinton acknowledges she used that email account for both personal and official business.

Statement on the Release of Secretary Clinton’s Benghazi 

Emails 


Washington, DC — Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., today 
issued the following statement after the State Department released 300 self-selected emails from 
former Secretary Hillary Clinton, over which the department had no control and no custody for 
nearly two years. These emails were turned over to the State by former Secretary Clinton in the 
fall of 2014 in reaction to a request from the Select Committee: 


“More than six months after the Select Committee first discovered Secretary Clinton’s unusual 
email arrangement with herself, and after the media discovered Secretary Clinton relied 
exclusively on a personal server housing a personal email account eschewing any official email 
address, State Department transferred 300 messages exclusively reviewed and released by her 
own lawyers,” Gowdy said. “These lawyers, it must be noted, owed and continue to owe a 
fiduciary responsibility to Secretary Clinton to protect her interests. To assume a self-selected 
public record is complete, when no one with a duty or responsibility to the public had the ability 
to take part in the selection, requires a leap in logic no impartial reviewer should be required to 
make and strains credibility." 


“It is also important to remember these email messages are just one piece of information that 
cannot be completely evaluated or fully understood without the total record. The Committee is 
working to collect and evaluate all of the relevant and material information necessary to evaluate 
the full range of issues in context. We will not reach any investigative conclusions until our work 
is complete, but these emails continue to reinforce the fact that unresolved questions and issues 
remain as it relates to Benghazi.” 


“The Select Committee continues to believe the American people have a right to the full and 
complete record of her official emails and, therefore, asked Secretary Clinton to turn her server 
and the full body of emails over to a neutral, detached, independent third party for review. This 
is also why the State Department must comply with a months-old subpoena for emails of the 
former Secretary’s top aides, whose emails have never been received or reviewed by any 
congressional committee." 


“The Committee’s interest is in building a complete record from which the final, definitive 
accounting regarding the terrorist attacks in Benghazi can be provided. The best way to answer 
all questions related to the attacks in Benghazi continues to be having access to the full public 
record, not a "record" controlled, possessed and screened exclusively by Secretary Clinton's 
personal lawyers.”

### 


Background Information on Released Emails: 


Among the emails the Select Committee finds highlight the existence of significant 
investigative questions: 

September 24, 2012 — “Compiled protest and Benghazi Statements.” A document that reinforces issues relating to 
characterization of the motives for the attacks. For example, Jake Sullivan noted, “You never said spontaneous or 
characterized the motives. In fact you were careful in your first statement to say we were assessing motive and 
method. The way you treated the video in the Libya context was to say that some sought to ‘justify* the attack on 
that basis.” 

August 24, 2012 — “H: Intel on new Libya president. Sid.” In this document two and a half weeks before the 
attacks, Jake Sullivan writes to the Secretary, “Some warning signs,” in response to the deteriorating security 
situation in Benghazi, which forced the Red Cross to suspend activities, and reinforces questions about what was 
done in response to these warnings. 

April 4, 2012 — “Secretary Clinton’s Leadership on Libya.” This document characterizes Secretary Clinton’s 
ownership of U.S. policy in Libya. 

April 8, 201 1 — “UK game playing; new rebel strategists; Egypt moves in. Sid” In this document, Secretary Clinton 
responded to a Blumenthal memo with, “Fyi. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should 
be considered.” 


There are several instances of State personnel notifying the Secretary about 
security concerns and issues: 

April 10,2011 - Forwarded email about deteriorating security 

April 22, 201 1 - Request for continuous coverage in Benghazi, “security permitting” 

April 24, 201 1 - Forwarded email about hotels being targeted 

June 1 0, 201 1 - Email including information about credible threat info against hotel and that personnel are 
evacuating to alternate locations 

August 21, 201 1 - Email regarding concerns about Islamist militias 

January 9, 2012 - Email stating that disarming and reintegrating of militias isn’t going as well as they had hoped 
February 24, 2012 - Email stating that militia rivalries are dangerous 
August 24, 2012 - Email stating that there are “some warning signs” 


The Committee also has an interest in understanding the inexplicable gaps in the 
Secretary’s emails during key times of her involvement in Libyan policy, including: 


June 10-August 8, 201 1 — Time period where Secretary Clinton was heavily involved in Libya 
policy 


September 14-October 21 2011 — Dates of Secretary Clinton’s trip to Libya, when the now- 
famous picture of Clinton on her blackberry was taken 


October 21 , 201 1 -January 5, 2012 — Time period when the State Department was extending the 
Benghazi mission for another year

First Batch of Hillary Clinton's Emails on Libya Made Public 
BY CARRIE DANN 

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/hillarv-clinton/first-batch-hillary-clintons-emails-libva-made- 

public-n362506 

A batch of Hillary Clinton's personal emails made public on Thursday morning offers a glimpse 
into her team's initial exchange of information in the wake of the Benghazi attacks as well as her 
relationship with longtime confidante Sidney Blumenthal, who sent her at least two dozen memos 
regarding Libya during her tenure as Secretary of State. 

The State Department plans to release about 850 pages of the emails, which had been handed 
over to the congressional panel investigating the Benghazi attacks. But on Thursday, the New 
York Times released about a third of that batch of correspondence, which Clinton exchanged 
using a private server rather than a government email account. 

The documents show that, while Clinton used her personal email account to receive information 
the government calls "sensitive," she did not appear to use her private server to exchange 
classified information. 

The "sensitive" information included details like the location of State Department officials in Libya 
during a time of instability in the country in 201 1 . 

The documents released by the New York Times also show that Clinton received numerous 
briefing memos about Libya from Blumenthal, a longtime friend of the Clintons who was not 
employed by the State Department. The New York Times reported earlier this week that 
Blumenthal was also involved with a possible business venture in the country at the time. 

Two of those memos from Blumenthal came in the days immediately following the September 1 1 , 
2012 Benghazi attacks. 

In one, sent on September 12, Blumenthal suggested that top security officers in the country 
believed that the attacks "were inspired by what many devout Libyan viewed as a sacrilegious 
internet video on the prophet Mohammed originating in America." Clinton forwarded that 
information to top adviser Jake Sullivan with the message "more info." 

But another memo sent the following day indicated that the attacks may have actually been 
carried out by a militia group. Blumenthal wrote that officials in the country "believe that the 
attackers having prepared to launch their assault took advantage of the cover provided by the 
demonstrations in Benghazi protesting an internet production seen as disrespectful to the

prophet Mohammed.

The release of the emails comes after a prolonged political fight for Clinton over her use of a 
private email server while serving as Secretary of State. 

On Tuesday, Clinton urged the State Department to expedite the vetting of the emails after initial 
reports suggested that the data trove would not be ready for public release until January of next 
year

State Dept, releases Hillary Clinton e-mails in Benghazi probe 
AP MAY 22, 2015 

http://www.bostonalobe.com/news/nation/2015/Q5/22/state-dept-set-release-hillary- 

clinton-mails-benahazi-probe/E48MdmnEHKruEi5sTKzOwM/story.html 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received 
information on her private email server about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in 
Benghazi that was classified Friday at the FBI’s request. 

The email in question, forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff, relates to reports of 
arrests in Libya of possible suspects in the attack. 

The information was not classified at the time the email was sent and was upgraded from 
unclassified to “secret” on Friday, according to State Department officials. The officials said 
23 words of the November 2012 message were redacted from the release of 896 emails 
totaling 296 pages, to protect information that may damage foreign relations. 

They said no other redactions were made for classification reasons. 

Spokeswoman Marie Harf says publication includes 296 e-mails given to a House committee 
investigating the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. 

She says redactions were made according to Freedom of Information Act standards. The 
emails will be released via the State Department’s FOIA website, foia.state.gov 

The documents cover e-mails between 201 1 and 2012 related to the Benghazi facility and 
its security, and to the broader issue of a US diplomatic presence in Libya. 

Harf says the e-mails don’t provide new facts about how four Americans were killed on Sept. 
11, 2012. The State Department also said on Twitter that the emails don’t provide a change 
in its understanding of the events. 

The State Department is still reviewing 55,000 further pages of e-mails from Clinton’s private 
email account. They’ll be published on a rolling basis.

Good evening- 

Two items to highlight tonight: 

1 . Great news! AFT would like to set up a call next week to start discussing 
a endorsement roll out. They are moving forward with a target date of July 
1 1th but nothing is confirmed. Everything looks on track for that to be the 
timeline. AFT would like to have political, comms, whomever you think is 
appropriate to discuss the strategy behind the roll out. I'm happy to pull the 
call together if you can let me know who and how you'd like to proceed. 

2. Robby presented at the AFL-CIO Political Director's meeting today and 
did a excellent job! I've gotten feedback from several unions that they felt 
Robby's presentation was very good. Robby was asked about energy, 
apprenticeship tax credit, fundraising, field staffing and of course trade 
(CWA). Sanders' campaign presented afterward and I understand it was 
"respectable but didn't change any minds". Sanders emphasized his $15 
million fundraising and his low dollar fundraising (under $37). If anyone 
would like additional details, I'm happy to provide. Those were the big take 
aways. 

No new RSVPs today to John's HRC reception.

Subject: Press plan 


Friends - I have an update and a new idea to share. 

First, I spoke with David and the earliest we could put out a statement about the thumb drive and server is later 
this afternoon. He has a 2 pm call to resolve remaining issues. 

I think our best course now is to hold our staff statement till Sunday afternoon (past Sunday shows), have Brian 
and I do a lot of tv on Monday to air some of the issues out and then not have HRC do an interview until 
Tuesday. She would, however, have to do a media avail on Monday. Two benefits of this revised plan - we 
have a better sense of press reactions before having her sit down and it is more time for her to be in right head 
space. Given where she is now, I don't think it is realistic to expect that an interview on Monday would go well. 
Do also think there is a value in having staff take first round of questions on this. 

Thoughts?

Thank you Victoria. I shared these with my father. He has a few thoughts I know he wants to share with John 
and Bruce on the CCO descriptions. 

My father also just finished reading, in our apartment with me, the anonymous interview quotes organized by 
theme he had requested that you had shared with me last week. He is going to follow up with John directly.

I thought it went well and was well-timed -- there was a strong sense that the upcoming Indian elections provided 
an opening to elevate cooperation in this space, which gave the discussion a little more focus and urgency. The 
fact that we had such high-level administration interest and participation at the meeting and dinner from you, 
Moniz, etc. really impressed on the Indian side that this is something that the Obama administration cares about. 

We got to the stage where we were able to agree on joint recommendations for each session, with some more 
concrete than others. Once we get final language ironed out in the next week or so, we will be sending a joint 
letter to Sec Moniz and his counterpart (Montek) with some ideas for their upcoming Energy Dialogue, and then 
will be sending a full set of Track II recommendations to both gov'ts right after the April/May Indian elections. 

Of course, still plenty of vehement disagreement on many things and we didn't even try to get into the int'l 
negotiations, but I think the work that you all put into this over the past few years is paying off. I'll be sure that 
you see all of the joint recs, plus any other promising ones that we couldn't agree on but are still worth pushing.

SFGate: “House panel: No administration wrongdoing in Benghazi attack” 


By Carolyn Lochhead 
August 1, 2014, 3:53 p.m. FDT 


The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 
2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson 
of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee. 


The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to 
approve making the report public. 


Thompson said the report "confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. 
forces) was given." 


That conflicts with accusations of administration wrongdoing voiced by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista (San Diego County), whose House Government 
Oversight and Reform Committee has held hearings on the Benghazi attack.

Stevens, who grew up in Piedmont, and the other Americans died when Libyans attacked the consulate on Sept. 1 1 , 201 2. Among the Intelligence 
Committee's findings, according to Thompson: 


- Intelligence agencies were "warned about an increased threat environment, but did not have specific tactical warning of an attack before it 
happened." 


- "A mixed group of individuals, including those associated with al Qaeda, (Moammar) Khadafy loyalists and other Libyan militias, participated in 
the attack." 


- "There was no 'stand-down order' given to American personnel attempting to offer assistance that evening, no illegal activity or illegal arms 
transfers occurring by U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and no American was left behind." 


- The administration's process for developing "talking points" was "flawed, but the talking points reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments 
in the days immediately following the crisis." 


Those talking points included assertions that those who attacked the compound were angered by an obscure anti-Muhammad video posted to 
YouT ube in the U.S. There is disagreement to this day about whether that was the case. 


Pittsburgh Tribune: “Clinton praises Trib publisher's fight 'for what he believed'” 

By Salena Zito and Mike Wereschagin 
August 2, 2014, 6:57 p.m. EDT 

An unlikely friendship drew former President Bill Clinton to a sunny hilltop in the Laurel Highlands on Saturday, where he paid tribute to the late 
Tribune-Review owner Richard Mellon Scaife. 


“If someone had asked me the day I left the White House what's the single most unlikely thing I would ever do, this would rank high on the list,” 
Clinton told about 150 Trib Total Media employees, who gathered around the pool at Scaife's boyhood home in Penguin Court for the memorial. 
Scaife died July 4, a day after his 82nd birthday. 


A founder and funder of conservative think tanks and advocacy groups, Scaife's opposition to Clinton marked much of the latter's two terms as 
president. But the acrimony softened after Clinton left office in 2001 , and the two became friends, with Scaife supporting Clinton's foundation and 
his wife's 2008 presidential campaign. 


Clinton said he's “grateful” to former New York Mayor Ed Koch, a mutual friend, for convincing Clinton that he and Scaife had more in common than 
he thought. The two met on July 31, 2007, in the Harlem offices of the Clinton Foundation. Scaife later donated more than $100,000 to the 
foundation. 


“Our differences are important. Our political differences, our philosophical differences, our religious differences, our racial and ethnic differences, 
they're important. They help us to define who we are," Clinton said. “But they don't have to keep us at arm's length from others.” 


Clinton used his reconciliation with Scaife and the friendship the two forged as an example of what's missing in conflicts from Capitol Hill to Gaza.

“I think the counterintuitive friendship we formed is a good symbol of Richard Mellon Scaife's legacy. He fought as hard as he could for what he 
believed, but he never thought he had to be blind or deaf to re-evaluating his positions, no matter how closely held, Clinton said. 


The description “counterintuitive” was borrowed from his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who used the word to describe her 
meeting with Tribune-Review reporters and editors in 2008, during the hotly contested Democratic presidential primary in Pennsylvania. 


The paper's editorial board endorsed Hillary Clinton in the April primary election, and Scaife penned an opinion piece praising the New York 
Democrat. 


“You need to know that she treasures that column and that experience,” Clinton said. 


The sprawling hilltop estate in Ligonier, with sweeping views of the Laurel Highlands, was named for the 1 0 penguins that once roamed the 
grounds after Scaife's mother, Sarah, bought them following a famed Antarctic expedition by Richard Byrd. 


H. Yale Gutnick, Scaife's longtime friend and attorney, introduced the 42nd president, saying Scaife asked him before his death to invite Clinton to 
the memorial to make it a special day. Gutnick is chairman of the Trib Total Media board of directors. 


A 50-room mansion built by Scaife's parents once stood on the estate. After they died, Scaife built his own estate, Vallamont, on a nearby 
mountain in 1 961 . He tore down the stone mansion at Penguin Court, but preserved a portion of the broad stone foundation that extends from the 
hillside and supports a wide, flat lawn, as well as the property's cobblestone driveway, ornate stone benches and 120-foot-long greenhouse. A 
passionate horticulturalist who kept fresh flowers throughout his homes, he built a conservatory near where the house once stood. 


Scaife willed the property and $1 5 million for its maintenance to the Philadelphia-area Brandywine Conservancy, on whose board of trustees he 
served. 


Clinton said he was “moved” by a series of columns Scaife wrote in the Trib, first announcing his terminal cancer and then explaining the passions 
of his life, newspapers chief among them. 


“I wish he'd have been able to write more,” Clinton said. “I was really moved by what he said about all of you and journalism as a profession and 
making sure that his papers were in a position to be there for our children and our grandchildren.” 


Politico: “Bill Clinton eulogizes Richard Mellon Scaife: Nemesis, then friend” 


By Kenneth P. Vogel 
August 2, 2014, 10:09 p.m. EDT 


Bill Clinton on Saturday fondly memorialized one of the key financiers of what Hillary Clinton years ago deemed the “vast right-wing conspiracy.” 


Speaking at a private memorial service in southwestern Pennsylvania for Richard Mellon Scaife, who died last month, Clinton recalled how, after 
his presidency, he built a “counterintuitive friendship” with the conservative billionaire, according to an account of the speech in one of the 
newspapers Scaife owned. 


“He fought as hard as he could for what he believed, but he never thought he had to be blind or deaf to other views, the Pittsburgh Tribune- 
Review quotes Clinton saying of its former publisher. A spokesman for Clinton declined to comment.

Scaife, who inherited a fortune from the Mellon banking and oil empire, steered millions of dollars to groups that savagely attacked the Clintons 
throughout the 1 990s. Scaife backed media outlets and nonprofits that pushed scandal after scandal that buffeted the Clinton administration — 
from the Whitewater real estate controversy to the Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky sex scandals to raising doubts about the deaths of Clinton 
aides Vince Foster and Ron Brown. 


Scaife confidant Christopher Ruddy, who rose to prominence on the Clinton scandal beat at the Tribune-Review, arranged Clinton’s appearance at 
Saturday’s memorial. Afterward, he acknowledged his former boss “was the bete noire of the Clinton administration during those years, sort of like 
what the Kochs are to the Obama administration today.” 


But Scaife became enamored with Clinton’s post-presidential philanthropic work on AIDS in Africa and other issues, and a thaw began, said 
Ruddy, now CEO of the conservative Scaife-backed media outlet Newsmax. 


Ruddy and the late former New York City Mayor Ed Koch helped broker a July 2007 meeting with Scaife and the former president in the Clinton 
Foundation’s Harlem office, and Scaife donated more than $1 00,000 to the foundation. Still, Scaife raised eyebrows by praising Hillary Clinton 
during her 2008 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, and his Tribune-Review later endorsed her over Barack Obama ahead of the 
Pennsylvania primary. 

In introducing Clinton on Saturday, the chairman of Scaife’s media company, H. Yale Gutnick, a longtime Scaife friend, said the former president and 
Scaife “shared a mutual love of America,” according to Ruddy, who said Clinton talked about how Thomas Jefferson and John Adams initially 
clashed before finding common cause and becoming allies and friends. 


And the Tribune-Review quoted Clinton saying, “Our differences are important. Our political differences, our philosophical differences, our religious 
differences, our racial and ethnic differences, they’re important. They help us to define who we are. . . . But they don’t have to keep us at arm’s 
length from others.” 


The ex-president’s ability to find common cause with former adversaries is a model that other political figures in an increasingly polarized 
Washington would be wise to emulate, Ruddy said. 


“Think about the outrageous things that were said about him, including by me, and he was able to overcome that and reach out to his critics and his 
adversaries and make them his friends and work together on the things we agree with,” Ruddy said. “It’s on the level of Nelson Mandela — that 
type of higher thinking and ability to forgive and forget, and it’s an example of how people who have partisan and ideological differences can work 
together for the common good.” 


At Saturday’s memorial, which was held at the Ligonier, Pennsylvania, estate where Scaife grew up and which was attended by more than 100 
employees of his media outlets, Clinton was presented with a photo of Hillary Clinton meeting with Scaife before the 2008 Ftennsylvania primary. 


And Ruddy predicted that her husband’s willingness to reach across the aisle will cause some major Republican donors who fought the Clinton 
administration alongside Scaife to be less hostile if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016. 


“There is a realization among high-level donors and sophisticated politicos on the Republican side that Hillary Clinton is a centrist Democrat who is 
pro-American business and is very strong on national security,” he said. “There is a sense that she and her husband share a similar worldview.”

Sen. Marco Rubio said on Sunday that his recent criticisms of Hillary Clinton as a “20th-century candidate” weren’t a veiled reference to the 23 
year age difference between the two potential White House contenders. 


“You can be 40 years old and be a 20th-century candidate,” said the 43-year-old Florida Republican, a possible member of the 2016 GOP 
presidential field, on Fox News on Sunday. 


Sen. Rubio said Ms. Clinton, 66, was incapable of addressing the modern and rapidly changing challenges facing America. 


“We are going through the equivalent of an industrial revolution every five years and I don’t think she or her party, and quite frankly, even some 
people in my party, have answers to that,” he said. 


Sen. Rubio made the 20th-century remarks in a recent interview with National Public Radio. 


CBS News: “Sen. Rand Paul: Hillary Clinton not ‘fit to lead the country’” 

By Jake Miller 

August 2, 2014, 2:25 p.m. EDT 

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said Hillary Clinton is not "fit to lead the country" Friday, mocking the former secretary of state's comments about her wealth 
and condemning her response to the September 2012 attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi. 


Paul's scathing words could provide an early look at the arguments he will deploy against Clinton if they both decide to run for president. They 
came during a speech in Kentucky before a crowd of several hundred GOP activists. 


Paul opened his speech by joking that he was losing sleep over Clinton's money problems, according to National Journal. 


During her recent book tour, Clinton drew flack for claiming at one point that she and former Resident Bill Clinton were "dead broke" when they left 
the White House in 2001 . Although they were deeply in debt when Mr. Clinton's presidency ended, they would go on to earn millions on the 
speaking circuit. 


Paul asked his audience to observe a "moment of silence" for Clinton's finances. 


"Somebody must have been praying for her," he said, "because she's now worth 100, 200 million. I tell you, it was really tough giving those 
speeches." 


But at least she didn't suffer alone, Paul joked: "She had her limo driver with her for the last 1 7 years to commiserate." 


"I certainly wish she becomes preoccupied with something else," he added, "because I don't think she's fit to lead the country." 


10/18/2016

Paul also ripped Clinton's response to the attack in Benghazi, which killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. Fhul 
faulted Clinton for neglecting to read the memos requesting additional security for the Benghazi facility during her time as secretary of state. 


She treated Benghazi "as if it were Paris," Paul said. "Benghazi's not Fhris. Benghazi is a lot like Baghdad ... if you don't read the cables from one 
of the most dangerous spots on earth, frankly, you preclude yourself from ever being our commander in chief." 


The speech fired up GOP troops in Kentucky, but it was only a prelude to Paul's swing through Iowa next week. Starting Monday, Paul will visit at 
least eight different communities representing each of the state's major media markets, according to the Des Moines Register. 


Iowa, which holds the leadoff caucuses in the presidential nominating process, is a must-visit state for anyone mulling a presidential bid. The state 
has already seen a flurry of visits from potential 201 6 contenders this year. 


In addition to Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is in Iowa this weekend, and he's scheduled to attend an event sponsored by notable Iowa Republican 
Bruce Rastetter, the Register reports. 


Cruz, whose high-profile fights with Democrats and his own GOP leaders have endeared him to grassroots conservatives, has emerged as a 
favorite among the activists who traditionally power Iowa's Republican caucuses. 


"Whenever we need a voice in Washington, he seems to be the most eager to stand up for we out here in the grassroots," Steve Deace, a 
conservative radio host based out of Iowa, told The Hill newspaper. "The more people disdain him in D.C., the more they're going to improve his 
chances in 2016." 


Paul and Cruz are also scheduled to attend the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, later this month, where they'll be joined by several other 
potential presidential contenders, including Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., and Govs. Rick Perry, R-Texas, and Bobby 
Jindal, R-La. 


Salon: “Is Hillary Clinton the true heir of Ronald Reagan?” 

By Andrew O’Hehir 
August 2, 2014, 1:00 p.m. EDT 


[Subtitle:] Not since 1 980 has a candidate seemed so unstoppable - and Hillary resembles the Gipper in other ways too 


No doubt it’s the height of folly to forecast the results of a presidential election that’s still more than two years away. But most observers of any 
political orientation, regarding the landscape right now, would conclude that it’s more likely than not that America’s first black president will be 
directly followed by our first female president. Are you celebrating yet? 


Of course we don’t know for sure whether Hillary Clinton is running in 2016, but at this point she’s just toying with us, like a cat with a badly injured 
mouse. She stands in a virtually unprecedented position of dominance, relative to her own party and the electorate as a whole. While the 
Democratic left harbors impotent fantasies of defeating her (Bernie Sanders LOL!) and the Republican right prepares for a predictable series of 
apoplectic seizures about how she’s a lesbian murderess who personally shot up the Benghazi consulate, the public seems generally OK with 
Clinton’s impending coronation. As numerous commentators have observed, her principal opponent is probably not Jeb Bush or Rand Paul but 
herself, or at least the possibility that we’ll all feel sick of her before she gets elected. It’s a strange situation, and not a healthy one. 


Let’s take a second to recognize that I’m a white dude delivering a dismissive take on events of undoubted historical and symbolic significance that 
were, or will be, immensely meaningful for many people. But after the disheartening first three-quarters of the Obama era, it’s difficult to avoid the

conclusion that symbolic meaning is the last layer of meaning left in our quadrennial electoral circus. Maybe it’s not Hillary Clinton’s fault that her 
likely ascension feels like the event that will mark the final Dracula-suckage of lifeblood from American electoral politics, just as it’s not entirely 
Barack Obama’s fault that his “transformational presidency” blundered into a stagnant swamp infested with whining Republican mosquitoes and 
never got out again. They are just two people, after all! Two imperfect people with the best intentions, supposedly trying to do their best in a 
screwed-up situation. 


Except that I don’t really buy that argument. Obama and Clinton and everybody else in the partisan duopoly are simultaneously the casualties, 
beneficiaries and perpetrators of a broken system, in which Democrats and Republicans draw their voters from opposing social castes (not 
classes) but actually represent the interests of rival cliques within a tiny moneyed elite. The onetime Seven Sisters student radical “had to” evolve 
into a mouthpiece for Wall Street and the entrenched foreign-policy establishment, just as the onetime Chicago community activist “had to” leave the 
financial sector in the hands of exactly the same criminals who wrecked it and renege on a whole range of hopey-changey campaign promises. 

I’m well aware of the spin their defenders will put on that stuff - politics is a dirty business and we ail need to grow up and anyway SCOTUS! - 
and we’re not going to settle that debate today, or at any other time. 


As you will no doubt recall, people got immensely excited on both sides of the heated Obama-Clinton primary battle in 2008, hurling all kinds of 
invective about racism and sexism at each other, predicting catastrophic defeat for the other candidate and promising to rip the fragile Democratic 
coalition apart. (Remember the PUMA demographic, angry Clinton supporters who threatened to bolt for the McCain-Palin ticket out of spite? Ah, 
memory!) Whatever that was really about - and my former Salon colleague Rebecca Traister has explored it in depth - it had very little to do with 
those two candidates, except in their roles as symbols or signifiers. 


All that fevered discussion about who rigged the Nevada caucus and who made the most obnoxious comments on TV feels like a lifetime ago, the 
product of an innocent age when politics seemed charged with possibility and hope. But the thing is, it wasn’t all that long ago and we weren’t 
innocent. We should have known better and basically did. It’s just that presidential elections exert a seductive allure that keeps suckering us back 
into the tent, like a bunch of Ohio farm boys at a 1 9th-century carnival, hoping against hope that this time the magic will turn out to be real. It’s a lot 
easier to write snarky, dispassionate analysis now than it will be in a year or so, when progressives are trying to gin up excitement for a 
nonexistent Bizabeth Warren campaign or we all have to have a hysterical meltdown about Ted Cruz’s “surprising” poll numbers from a fondue 
dinner held in an Iowa cornfield. 


There’s no precise historical parallel, at least in the contemporary party-politics era, for the commanding position Hillary Clinton appears to hold 
roughly 1 6 months out from the first caucuses and primaries. It’s not that there haven’t been heavy favorites or heirs apparent in previous elections 
- that’s a feature of the system. But it seems not just possible but probable that Clinton will face no serious or significant opposition within her own 
party, which as far as I can tell is a brand new situation for a non-incumbent candidate. Warren is nowhere near foolish enough to torch her 
political future on a futile campaign of resistance. While Joe Biden will almost certainly run if Clinton doesn’t, he’s not enough of a masochist to take 
her on directly and endure yet another public humiliation. If Sanders runs (and he’d have to change his political registration, for one thing) he’ll make 
the Dennis Kucinich campaigns of 2004 and 2008 look like devastating political whirlwinds. 


If there’s a historical precedent to Hillary-zilla it is to be found in the Republican Party, where big-money donors and a Washington-based 
establishment have long done their best to control the presidential nomination process and quell populist uprisings. Specifically, it’s Ronald Reagan 
in 1980. Most Republicans assumed going into that campaign that Reagan - who had been waiting around as the conservative savior since nearly 
wresting the nomination from Gerald Ford in 1 976 - would sweep to victory in the primaries and then drive cardigan-clad malaise-monger Jimmy 
Carter from the White House and restore America to its true greatness. They were ultimately correct about all that (except for the “true 
greatness”), but Reagan actually faced brief but spirited opposition from George H.W. Bush, who played the role of responsible centrist in that 
campaign and memorably denounced Reagan’s “voodoo economics.” Bush emulated the Carter-McGovern strategy of slogging through all the 
meaningless straw polls and small-town dinners in the fall of 1 979 while Reagan stayed home in California, and after winning the Iowa caucus 
Bush momentarily looked like the front-runner. Reagan ultimately swamped him in the South, of course, but Bush won six primaries and more than 3 
million votes, essentially forcing himself onto the ticket as the vice-presidential nominee. Who’s going to put up that level of resistance to Hillary 
Clinton? 


I guess the 1 988 Republican campaign also looks similar, but only at first glance and only in the rear-view mirror: After two terms as Reagan’s vice 
president, Bush coasted to the nomination just as everybody expected. (And then to victory over Michael Dukakis, one of the more bathetic also- 
rans of recent political history.) But those who remember that era in Republican politics can testify that the intra-party divisions were highly 
acrimonious. Sen. Bob Dole won the Iowa caucus and several Midwestern primaries, and deserves a special footnote in American history for 
decrying the lies and dirty tricks of Lee Atwater, Bush’s infamous campaign strategist. Televangelist Pat Robertson terrified the world that year by 
packing a few caucuses with his followers (he got 82 percent of the vote in Hawaii!), thereby compelling all future Republican candidates to pay 
ritual obeisance to the Christian right. 


There is certainly a cadre of disgruntled liberal Democrats who aren’t thrilled about the incoming tsunami of the Clinton campaign, and in the age of 
social media they’ll get to vent their spleen repeatedly in the months ahead by promising to draft Warren or vote Green or get so stoned that Rand 
Paul appears palatable. But it’s not at all clear that they represent a significant voting bloc, or that any plausible candidate wants to be their 
standard-bearer. This tells us a number of things about the contemporary Democratic Party and about politics in general, none of them terribly 
encouraging.

Among the obvious notes here is the fact that electoral politics has increasingly become an oligarchic or dynastic enterprise, open only to the 
immensely wealthy and/or the immensely well connected. If we get a Clinton facing a Bush in the 2016 general election - which is not just plausible 
but reasonably likely - that would mean that 50 percent of the major-party presidential nominees over the last 28 years and eight electoral cycles 
have had one or the other of those surnames. If politics is a blood sport for the new aristocracy — an American cognate to fox hunting, with you 
and me as the fox - that does more than symbolize our widening social inequality. It embodies it, and enacts it. You can’t separate the fact that only 
rich people can run for president from the fact that both parties are fueled by rich people’s money, or from the fact that beneath all their partisan 
bickering Democrats and Republicans have vigorously collaborated for more than 20 years on a set of deregulatory, low-tax and cheap-credit 
economic policies that have made rich people a whole lot richer. It’s not like those are unrelated coincidences. 


I’m not saying there are no differences between the two parties, or that given the binary choice with a gun to my head, I might not prefer Hillary 
Clinton as president to whomever the Republicans nominate. (This is a topic for another time, but Democrats clearly have the most to fear from 
Rand Paul, who represents a potentially significant reboot of the Republican brand.) Generally speaking, the Democratic Party stands for what 
might be termed the metropolitan caste in American life, a diverse group of people who live in or near major cities and tend to support a range of 
rights-based issues around race, gender, sexuality and related factors. You can’t say the party represents that caste with much force or courage, 
and it does so more by following than by leading. Democrats took years to commit fully to a pro-choice position, were late to the party on marriage 
equality, and are still way behind their metropolitan base on marijuana. Nonetheless that’s a big contrast to the Republicans, who at least for 
marketing purposes view the metropolitan caste as a bunch of socialistic tree-huggers who will take away your guns and your F-1 50 and compel 
you to drive a Prius to your gay marriage. 


But what Hillary Clinton and Obama and most other prominent Democrats of the 21 st century definitely don’t represent is any form of progressive 
or class-based economic philosophy. Elizabeth Warren’s election to the Senate caused such a stir because she appears to be a mild exception to 
this rule. As former Bill Clinton aide Bill Curry wrote recently in Salon, the deregulation of the telecommunications and financial services industries 
under his onetime boss in the ’90s was a more far-reaching and corporate-friendly policy shift than anything in Ronald Reagan’s wildest trickle- 
down dreams. That marked the moment, Curry says, when “issues of economic and political power [grew] invisible to Democrats.” When Ralph 
Nader ran for president in 2000 on precisely those issues, he was viewed as a traitor who cost Al Gore the White House. But if the Democrats 
had nominated a pro-lifer and Gloria Steinem had run as an independent, it might well have split the party in half. 


All of which brings me back to the final point of similarity between Hillary Clinton and Reagan, the man who dominated one election cycle from end 
to end and the woman who hopes to repeat that feat. They could hardly be more different as political personalities and (one imagines) as human 
beings, and their electoral appeal is directed at totally divergent audiences. But both function in the political marketplace first and foremost as 
powerful symbols: Reagan was a symbol of American manhood and the mythical American past, while Clinton stands (I guess) for the upward 
progress of American women and a more egalitarian future. (It’s not entirely accidental that both have provoked exaggerated hatred among their 
opponents.) 


I write about the movies, and would be the last person on Earth to tell you that symbols don’t matter. But they often do not mean what they seem to 
mean, and neither Clinton nor Reagan actually represents what they seem to represent. Reagan did little or nothing for the working-class white 
Americans who elected him, and if Clinton reaches the White House she will not be there to serve metropolitan women. Beneath the scrim of 
symbolic meanings, which are meant to reassure and distract and most importantly to win elections, the same force works through both of them: 
the force of money and those who wield it. 


The Daily Beast: “For 2016. Take Martin O’Malley Seriously” 


By Jonathan Miller 
August 3, 2014 

[Subtitle:] The Maryland governor is a problem-solver and a social-justice Catholic who can transcend the left-right divide. Keep an eye on him. 

As Martin O’Malley dips his ankles into the deep end of national politics - most recently with his full-throated plea earlier this month against the 
deportation of immigrant children — I recalled the first time I saw him on a national stage. 


I had a pretty good view: I was standing right next to him.

The two of us were being paraded as rising stars by the Democratic Leadership Council at the 2000 Democratic National Convention - and even 
featured together on the cover of The New Democrat magazine. 


Alas . . . may the DLC rest in peace. (So too with my own political career.) But give the late Third Way vanguard some crystal ball credit: O’Malley 
could be the next Resident of the United States. 


In his potential White House run, however, O’Malley won’t be pursuing the DLC’s lurch-to-the-center path. Nor will he be following the liberal 
orthodoxy. Indeed, it’s the Maryland Governor’s uniquely post-Clinton, post-Obama positioning that makes him this handicappefs pick to emerge as 
the dark horse with the most potent stretch kick in the 2016 presidential derby. 


The most compelling reason? As O’Malley demonstrated in the immigration debate, he’s the rare progressive to frame his strongly felt policy 
positions in the language of faith. It’s the passionate application of universal moral values by this devout Catholic that has the potential to upend the 
usual partisan and ideological categories that are choking today’s body politic. 


I sat down with O’Malley on July 1 1 , a few hours after he stole the platform at the National Governors’ Association annual conference in Nashville 
and broke with the Resident by forcefully and emotionally calling for a more compassionate policy on the treatment of Central American children 
who’ve recently come to the United States illegally: “It is contrary to everything we stand for to try to summarily send children back to death.” 


With the potential primary still flooded with fluid contingencies, O’Malley demurs about the prospects of challenging Hillary Clinton. "I haven't even 
decided if I'm running yet, so I'm not thinking about other potential candidates,” he told me. “I'm focused on governing Maryland, helping Democrats 
win in 2014, and preparing responsibly so that I can make a decision when the time is right." 


O’Malley’s record as governor of Maryland, and before that mayor of Baltimore, provides plenty of manna to nourish starving progressives. Long 
before his immigration comments, the Governor punched through a succession of liberal hot-buttons: Marriage equality? Check. Gun control? 
Check. Death penalty repeal? Check. Decriminalizing pot and legalizing medical marijuana? Check and check. Some might argue that he’s even been 
too liberal for solid blue Maryland. In fact, some do, and vociferously: Discontented residents of four western counties have been pushing an 
initiative for months to secede from the rest of the state. 


O’Malley has ticked off plenty of liberals as well. Inheriting a $1 .7 billion structural deficit and then plunging into the headwinds of the Great 
Recession, the Governor pushed through more than $9.5 billion in budget cuts, requiring sizable state employee layoffs, and the downsizing of 
critical health and transportation programs. And the state’s largest public employee unions expressed considerable displeasure with O’Malley’s 
signature pension reform efforts 


Overall, however, O’Malley can point to a fiscal track record that most progressives would embrace: investing record sums in education to 
produce the nation’s top ranked public schools five years in a row and lowest college tuition hikes since 2007; expanding the earned income tax 
credit and increasing the minimum wage to $1 0.1 0 an hour; and recovering all of the jobs lost in the national recession. 


Of course, you can’t win enough electoral votes in our purple nation by tacking completely left — especially in 2016, when Obama fatigue likely will 
be weighing on the nation. 


But O’Malley understands that the left/right/center paradigm isn’t important to the Americans who actually determine our national elections in today’s 
deeply polarized polity. Swing voters and independents aren’t clamoring for moderation or centrism: They are looking for leaders who will put aside 
party and ideology on occasion and actually get stuff done. 


Over the past few years, the national bi-partisan grassroots organization No Labels (I’m a co-founder) has been polling and focus-grouping these 
voters. Our surveys have consistently shown that a majority of Americans are looking not at party or ideology; but rather for problem-solving. And 
O’Malley can make a plausible case that he’s been a problem-solver above all. 


Time’s best mayor of 2005 and Governing’s public official of 2009 has defined his brand as a stickler for non-partisan, data-driven management 
and administrative competence. In his coming out speech in Iowa - keynoting this June’s state Democratic convention — O’Malley devoted several 
minutes to discussing the technocratic approach he used to fight crime: “When I was elected mayor in 1 999 . . . Baltimore had become the most 
violent, most addicted, most abandoned city in America ... So we set out to make our city work again. We saw trash in our streets and alleys, so

we picked it up every day. We saw open air drug markets, and we began to relentlessly close them down . . . Over the next 1 0 years, Baltimore 
went on to achieve the biggest reduction in part 1 crime of any major city in America.” 


He has used the same non-ideological approach on issues ranging from biotechnology and aerospace to roads, bridges, transit projects, new 
schools, and rural broadband connectivity. 


But the most interesting thing about O’Malley is his exploration of an intriguing, heart-centered strategy that could potentially shake up our national 
political paradigm: using the language of faith and universal moral values to ground public policy. Republicans have owned the faith space since 
the Reagan era. Presidential candidate Barack Obama tried valiantly to take it back in 2008, but after the embarrassment of Reverend Jeremiah 
Wright and the right wing’s maniacal campaign to brand him a Muslim, Obama’s rhetorical strategy was mostly abandoned. 


O’Malley appears to be reaching to pick up the scepter. The regular weekday Mass attendee — who brings to mind the beer-drinking, Irish Catholic 
everyman rather than the pious moral scold — described his religious beliefs to me as the underpinning of his public vocation. He referred me to a 
speech he delivered to his high school alma mater way back in 2002 in which he connected his Catholic education with his passion for problem 
solving: 


“I learned ... to search for Christ in the faces of others including, and especially, the faces of the poor, the faces of the homeless men who lined 
up for a meal every morning alongside the foundations of this church ... I learned ... to recognize and confront the enemy within - the original sin 
of our own culture and environment that would have us think less of people who - because of race, or class, or place - are not like us . . . And I 
learned that it is not enough to have faith, you must also have the courage to risk action on that faith, to risk failure upon that faith: the faith that one 
person can make a difference and that each of us must try.” 


It’s no wonder, then, that he grounded his angry denunciation of Obama’s immigration policy in the faith tradition: “Through all of the great world 
religions, we are told that hospitality to strangers is an essential human dignity. ... It is a belief that unites all of us.” 


Note that he didn’t mention his Christianity, nor even the slightly more politically correct construct of “Judeo-Christian values.” Instead, he reached 
to a broader audience, with the understanding that all religious and spiritual traditions in world history share at their core the same universal moral 
values, of welcoming the stranger and loving one’s neighbor — of compassion and community. This appeal to unity — to a common higher ground 
— can potentially disrupt the GOP’s monopoly on faith, without frightening religious minorities, or even agnostics, from the Democratic fold. 


Most significantly, by embracing shared moral values, O’Malley might even find the path to counter today’s dominant politics of self-interest that 
underlies both Tea Party libertarianism and the more cynical, transactional-based politics that serves as Washington’s greatest bi-partisan 
consensus. 


Perhaps that’s enough dreaming. Back here in the real world of politics, O’Malley has quite an arduous journey ahead of him, especially if Clinton 
decides to run. He can expect bruising personal and professional scrutiny from a cruel and punishing new media, which may constrain his ability 
to define himself and articulate the vision. Most pertinently, recent critical focus on a Baltimore jail scandal and Obamacare’s rocky roll out in 
Maryland could directly undermine both his problem-solver and moral paladin narratives. 


But at least from my vantage point, Martin O’Malley could be the right messenger with the right message. And the rising star still standing just might 
be in the best position to offer some elixir to our deeply ailing political system. 


Washington Examiner: “Why some donors are giving to dark horse Martin O'Malley” 


By Rebecca Berg 

August 3, 2014, 5:00 a.m. EDT

As it turns out, not everyone is ready for Hillary. 


Page 489 


Though former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic frontrunner, leads by as much as 50 percent in some polls, there is 
some evidence that some former supporters are looking with interest at Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. 


As many Democrats might have expected, O’Malley has attracted respectable support from within Maryland, as well as from some prominent 
former Obama supporters, such as the bundler Stewart Bainum. 


But, more surprisingly, O’Malley’s early base of support also overlaps somewhat with Clinton’s network, even as she appears as poised as ever to 
run for president and swamp him in the race, at least at the outset. 


There are several reasons why potential donors or aides might eschew supporting Clinton for O’Malley, at least for now. 


On the staffing side, there is a sense among some young, up-and-coming Democratic operatives that the waiting list for a potential Clinton 
presidential campaign is already closed — but not so with a fresh candidate like O’Malley, whose campaign could be a prime launching pad for 
new political talent. 


One senior position on O’Malley’s political team has already been scooped up by a Clinton alum. Adam Goers, who served as Clinton’s midwest 
finance director during her bid for president, is the executive director at O’Malley’s federal political action committee, O’ Say Can You See PAC, 
known colloquially as “O’PAC.” 


A similar story is being told in donations to the FAC, which brought in nearly $800,000 during the most recent fundraising quarter. Already, two 
former Clinton bundlers — so-called “Hillraisers” from the 2008 campaign — have stepped up to contribute thousands of dollars to O’Malley: Lainy 
Lebow-Sachs of Maryland and C. Thomas McMillen of Washington. 


The donations don’t necessarily reflect dissatisfaction with Clinton. 


Paul DiNino served as the Democratic National Committee’s national finance director under President Clinton, and he supported Hillary Clinton in 
2008 — but he’s steering potential donors to O’Malley, making the case that it is a wise investment. Because O’Malley does not possess a vast 
donor network on par with Clinton’s, each big-money donor could wield that much more influence within O’Malley’s campaign, should it take flight. 


DiNino, who lives in Maryland but has deep ties to Iowa politics, has also stressed O’Malley’s role as a party surrogate during the 2014 midterm 
elections. The Maryland governor has, unlike Clinton, been crisscrossing the country to campaign for Democrats — in early presidential primary 
states, of course, but in others as well. 


“Right now, it's Martin O’Malley, and it's only Martin O’Malley,” DiNino said. “He’s filling a giant void for Democrats.” 


A spokesperson for the pro-Clinton group Ready For Hillary told the Washington Examiner earlier this year that the group would “look to amplify the 
efforts that Hillary engages in for the midterms.” But those efforts, if they develop, likely won’t come to fruition until late in the fall. 


In the meantime, O’Malley is one of the few Democrats making all the overtures characteristic of a would-be presidential candidate, including 
frequent, publicized trips to early primary states. 


He has traveled on multiple occasions to Iowa, including last week, when O’Malley, the former chair of the Democratic Governors Association, 
campaigned with the state’s Democratic nominee for governor, Jack Hatch. 


O’Malley has also traveled twice to New Hampshire to raise money for Gov. Maggie Hassan and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, campaigned in South 
Carolina in May for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen, and even made a trip in May to Nevada, another early primary state.

O’Malley has not yet decided, officially and publicly, to run for president, although he has been candid about seriously considering that avenue. 
There is also a sense, however, fortified by hints from O’Malley’s allies, that he might not follow through with a campaign should Clinton run for 
president. 


O’Malley, after all, does not have an adversarial history personally or on policy with the Clintons. In fact, he was a bundler for Clinton during her 
2008 campaign. O’Malley, 51 , is also young enough to wait to run for president later should he decide the opportunity is not ripe this time. 


“He's not going anywhere,” DiNino said. “He has a long political career ahead of him.” 


And at least as long as Clinton publicly hems and haws about whether she will run for president, O’Malley will welcome some of her allies into his 
fold in support of that career, wherever it might lead.
